    Wink My 5th Gen Firebird Concept

    Don't know if this is the right place to post this at or not, if it isn't, I apologize.

    I went for a current Pontiac look rather than the "retro" style. Simply because I think this is what GM would do with the Zeta platform for Pontiac if we ever did see another bird again. Let me know what you guys think!

    which, basically makes it a firebird lol
    pretty sweet, its hard to tell in pictures, but i think it does look a little TOO similar to the camaro and gto tho.

    Wow...did you draw those? That amazing. In my opinion, it looks kind of like the GTO from the front, however, it does look sweet. I like it.

    Nicely done.. but not a car I would buy... I dont' want it to look like the GTO.. or the Camaro.. or a Grand Prix... Its never looked like any other car on the road.. thats what gave it it's "OOoohhhh... ahhhhhhhh" appeal. Rounded, aggressive, hidden headlights, and original design are my thoughts.

    I think they will eventually, once they devise a better mechanism.

    great.....another photoshop that'll be going around the web a month from now as a GM concept drawing Nice job on the ps though. I could see a couple of things I would've done differently. Honeycomb style tail lights, a much more wicked hood, and I would've had the center of the hood come down to a little more of a point to reflect the 67-69 birds/gto's. The honeycomb lights seem to be a bird trademark almost and the birds have been notorious for having some bad ass ram air hoods compared to other GM cars. 70 1/2 formula comes to mind.

    I think it needs more aggresive fender wells. Kinda like what they did for the Z06 from the regular C6. I agree the hood could be a hell of alot more aggresive, Birds always look like they are coming over to kick your ass instead of looking like they could. The rear could use a little more sculpting because right now it reminds me of a Solstice.

    Otherwise I think you have a pretty damn good concept.

    Look at all of pontiacs other cars right now though. Their designs are short of being aggressive-looking anymore. I think when they do come out with another TA it will be subtle and classy, not aggressive.

    Yea pop up lites are in the past, I dont think anyone is going to use them unless like mentioned about they find a better mechanism,
