Something old is new again - or hmmm could something like this be an alternative body.

To me this is just sexy. Well the body is, the wheels not so much so.

Meh, wheels may be the best part.
Front end is the worst, other than it being another creepy P.C. electric.

Put a proper engine in it, replace the awful grill, and you might have something.
As is, FAIL!

Notice I said possible alternative body.

The grill isn't half bad or rather something like that could be pretty cool, but the overall body lines are awesome!

Grill reminds me of the 1934 Chrysler Airflow.
Not a great sales success.

Do electric cars really need that much cooling?

Well if you want some brand identification they do. I'm not sure exactly how that ties into the Infiniti name, but they thought it gave the car the look of an Infiniti somehow.

I really like to side profile

Maybe that grill is the intake for cooling the 4-wheel 6-pot brakes? "To infiniti(y), and beyond" :mrgreen:

I really like the side shot, but those nice lines lead to that ugly grill... Cool car, thanks for posting.
