OK. I'll say it. Gawd it's ugly.

Ferrer 09-13-2014 11:27 PM

I think that the front is the least successful bit and that these renders don't do the car's justice, but if you look at pic 2 you can see that the proportions are just right.

Long bonnet, cabin pushed backwards, short deck.

Classic sportscar.

Kitdy 09-14-2014 12:07 AM

The proportions don't matter if the details aren't right, and vice versa.

The Miata has never been a looker, and here is another variant I won't be seen driving.

I kind of have to agree, it's not really the prettiest car.

Ferrer 09-15-2014 08:19 AM

It's not the best looking car ever but neither is it terrible.

And anyway, all that matters is the way it drives.

Kitdy 09-15-2014 12:05 PM

I could make a crude joke.

Ferrer 09-15-2014 01:30 PM

Please do.

First glance I'd think its a Honda S2000 every time I'd see one

Cobrafan427 09-15-2014 07:00 PM

Actually I got one better, it's a CR-Z, S2000, Jag F-Type frankenmonster

Oh man, that's cruel, I'd love to see a new S2000- sadly, I don't think we'll see a new one without batteries, a hybrid system and 4WD.

I don't see the resemblance, but I do laud Mazda for going simple. Honda/Acura is so lost at doing what they used to do well I'm at a loss for words.

MX-5 platform would probably be a good one for an electric motor in the back and a little rotary range extender motor in the front. If they did it right it would be a nice little halo/demo for the tech.

Nyehhhh...

Since we've established UCP is a safe place (in truth, I rarely see such civilized debate on a car forum, let alone the internet) I want to admit I'm not keen on dedicated roadsters. A coupe with a convertible variant? Solid. A dedicated roadster? Bleh. The removable roof on the Vette, and CGT/918 have always irked me for this reason.

Am I a bad person?

No, I don't like convertibles either. When the S2000 went away, I was hoping that they'd come out with a coupe version, kind of like the Z4 coupe.

I'm surprised, our taste in cars are quite similar.

This could be a climate thing. :)
