    Too cute or uniquely sporty?

    Let's talk looks... This thing is real bubbly and cute but with its FR layout it's also targeted at enthusiasts and ppl that actually like to drive. Those ppl tend to like more 'aggressive' looking cars so is this thing too cute for its likely demographic?

    I'd say this is true for the most part, but then there's this...



    Cute cars can definitely win the hearts of enthusiasts.

    You can always make it 'aggressive'

    Example. Suzuki Cappuccino
    Stock


    Modded


    But I do see your point that it's 'cute' for sure. I still like it none the less
    Balance is everything

    Hasn't stopped these cute cars from selling well to people that like to drive (together) either.

    This design reminds me a lot of the original NA Miata design. Little cartoonish but so simple and fun.

    Well, if the production car follows the same trend as the FRS, then it will look fairly different from the concept. Toyota is known for having weird looking concepts with far better looking production models...

    I'd say it's too cute in current form. Just change the headlights to something more similar to the FRS and it would look like dynamite.

    I love the design and actually hope it doesn't change much from concept to production. Most new cars are so overstyled it's refreshing to see something simple that doesn't have creases and folds and body kits everywhere.

    My only issue with the design is the grill. Way too big and low, giving it a blowfish look. Close it up and it will look good IMO. I like the simple design of it just needs to be less cartoonish.

    IMO it's a really good looking car. Lots of character and just enough retro. It's a more well conceived design than the MX-5 which has bad curves everywhere and that horrible rear end. Looking forward to the production version of this.

    From what I have read the target demographic is the sub 86 entry level crowd. I don't know how much it will be marketed to the performance guys so aggressive looks may not be the best anyway. Many cars have proven that "cute" sells to the average buyer so it may not change much. The level of completion in the pics seems to be well beyond the average concept or prototype which would also indicate that this is the production version already.

    I love the way it looks from the side, but I'm not sold on the front or the back. Although, I like the idea of it as a track car so I think it's a perfect mix of sporty and cute. Just imagine making it crazy fast and just passing everyone on a track with this cute, angry little car. I love it.
