That's not how it's turning out... unfortunately.

Hybrid? I can handle that, especially a torquey little hybrid. But the spec's it's built with right now I would not tolerate. 3.5L V6, convertible (hate convertibles with a passion), and an obese 3,300lb curb weight.

This isn't an MR2 of the future. It's more like higher end competition for a Boxster, possibly Audi TT? This car will NOT be cheap.

I actually dont mind the lights. I think its the ftont bumper thats ugly. Its just round n ugly. That said, if a front kit came out giving it a sharper look instead it would be cool. The back kind of reminds me of the new aston martin zagato a little since its just black w no cover.. overall i like it. Just not the front bumper..

they need to make a hard top version. Not sure what they're trying to accomplish here.

The color sucks and the design looks more confusing then aggressive. I would start with the MKI style, make it wider by 6 inches, have the front bumper taper down with a wide opening for cooling, cooling vents to the front brakes in the bumper instead of useless fog lights. Make it a hard top no sunroof etc, also add a roof scoop to flow cold air into the engine bay area. Picture a modern looking Lotus Esprit crossed with a Countach. Instead of this Lotus Elise/ Pontiac Solstice mutt with car parts sprayed with glue throw at it.

Here's a vid of a different version of the GRMN Sports Hybrid Concept, I can't tell if it's newer or older though.

There's also the FR Hot Hatch Concept and a supercharged IQ.
