Well, if you want to go there, the lines aren't too far off either...

Side mirrors back look a lot like the main GP designs from 97-903 and the 04+ models.

The G8 isn't a Firebird replacement, it'* a 4 door car. More of a 5 series fighter.

But yeah, I've seen tons of concept drawings. All have some GP and Bonne in them

hmmm I don't really know what to think. By the way that GP looks strikingly like a lancer evo 8. I like the rear wheel drive part. I just still can't get past the fact that the bonnie name has been dropped. No matter how badass that g8 will be, it will never be a bonnie to me. The thing I love the most about my car is that most people don't even know what it is. It'* not one of the 20-something mustangs(no joke) that I see in my schools parking lot. I am the ONLY one who drives a bonnie at my school(and one of the few who knows what it is and appreciates it). I don't strive to be different but I'm proud to drive a car that not everyone appreciates because that makes me one of the few people who have one. If g8 blows up and everybody loves it that will kindof takes from it'* appeal to me. Maybe I'm wierd but I'm just put off by the bonney being a thing of the past.

I'm not a big fan of RWD (one of my best friends spun out and was killed), but it looks like a nice car. I do hope they make it in a coupe.
