shorter overhangs and lower hood

I much prefer short overhangs and low hood lines. I like the red concept car very much. It is cleaner than the FRS concept, with an S2000-like hood line.


Why didn't they produce that beautiful concept? Did they get caught out by some hood pedestrian crash standard? The sheet metal hood lands above the chassis look added on to me.


I mean, if you have such a low engine, shouldn't the car lines reflect that instead of looking like a normal engine installation?


Anyway, I'm going to modify mine when I get it later this year to shorter overhangs and a lower hood.

Don't you just end up with a hard top Miata if you do that?

the amount of metal and plastic fab to re-do the front end has got to be about 5 years worth of spare time work.. it's going to be easier to just chop off the front just ahead of the firewall, and build a tube frame with custom sheet metal...

Buying one of these will save considerable time and money:

I would love to see how OP intends to achieve this without ruining the car, or costing tens of thousands of dollars in sheet metal and bodywork. (I don't think OP understands what would be involved here)

The twins already have quite short overhangs...way too much work for a rather minimal change from the side view...and good luck making the bumpers look good after smooshing them in.

Top tier professional designers & engineers vs flybo2160...place your bets folks

This reminded me of a couple abominations I've come across on the interwebz like this one..

He just needs to carefully push the car into a wall from both the front and the back.

Dont worry about the cracking and crunching sounds...those'll buff out hopfully when he's reached the desired overhang. And if the bumper falls apart, just 3d print new ones.

Its so easy, why havent the car designers thought of this???

I'm planning on butchering extra front and rear plastic body panels. I'll reuse as many portions that attach to the car as possible to avoid, as much as possible, fit problems. The remaining areas will be fabricated using Rutan's layup over foam technique. I'll foam an oversize glob of foam in place, trim it to shape, then lay up fiberglass over the foam and remaining pieces of the stock parts. The excess foam is then removed. I have the composite fabrication skills to do this.


I'll probably do the same thing with an extra stock hood.


If the new car has structure similar to the existing one, it looks like there is open space to shorten the plastic front and rear bumper covers.

I'd argue that the twins have about the same overhangs as the S2000 already.



That being said, if you are able to actually integrate it as smoothly irl as in a quick photoshop, it could look pretty interesting.
