    Would you consider this retro styling? To me it looks like the hacks at Chevy have a rager for last decade's European styling cues (married with Camaro's quarters.)

    This is a solid "meh..."

    If they want to make an impression, they need to throw back to the '63 split window. Now THAT was bad ass...

    Would it help if they made the faux vents metal? Titanium maybe?

    I don't really know. I've built mustangs and haven't fell in love with any of the new ones....hated them all at first and had to grow to like only one model (99-04). Still don't appreciate the new Camaro. The only throwback I think is worth looking at is the Challenger. The Charger is fine but I don't see how it's considered a throwback.

    They're calling it a throwback and I liked the car at first glance. Vets have been the only US staple outside 4x4 that has impressed for the last 20 years. I can't remember a Vet model I didn't absolutely love. This one picture seems to keep that strong tradition rolling along, retro aside.

    But hey, what if they put shotgun windows into one of these things huh?

    No. I don't think a high end car needs any fake **** on it. If it's not there to serve some purpose but looks like an air scoop or heat vent or whatever but it's actually blocked off then it shouldn't be there. That's completely lame.

    Not enough of a retro look for me. I preferred the boxy body-styles of mid-80s super cars, like this one

    By far the best of the retro crowd.

    Ya, sorry, just my bad humor. I hate faux intakes. Make 'em real or gtfo.
