Looks pretty good I think. Love the interior. I wonder what they will cost?

It looks like a 2 door PT Cruiser with fancy wheels.

It looks like they extended the overall length of the car. Roofline almost looks like the 911 Porsche.

They need to come out with a modern Squareback and a Karmen Ghia.

I don't hate it. I'm actually kinda' digging it.

But they are going to have to bring it in at a low enough price.

+1. Looks great all around. I'm glad they didn't make the interior Barbie-like as is the case with Mini Cooper.

Oil temp and turbo boost gauges are a nice touch, too, if you get the turbo version...

Pretty cool. But I hate the "I-can't-drive-a-stickshift-but-want-to-look-like-I-have-one" shifter.

If you squint hard enough it looks like a bloated early Porsche 911, or like a modern 356 hardtop.

They've got this guy looking a second time at it without saying "chick car"...

I don't see a chick car at all. Especially in the black one.

I wish the forward edge of the hood was round like the original instead of squared off.

And I can see a hint of the PT Cruiser like the one dude said.

Nonetheless, I like it.
