Yeah, I mean I knew the glass doors weren't going to make it (although they could have done some things to still give it the contrast provided by the dark glass). But things like the extremely unnatural downward kink in the belt-line (which was executed better in the coupe concept) and having four pillars just seem careless. Why were four pillars necessary? Its a small city car with a carbon fiber tub, so I mean they can't really play the structural rigidity card.
