I think its the angle of the render. Here is a side profile spy shot.

Better, but still looks bulky and the SLR already had that awful phallic beak. Hopefully they don't use that.

Older article, but they hinted at a price tag.

Nonetheless, the starting point for the FT-1 was a theoretical car with a real-world price tag between $50,000 and $60,000, said Kevin Hunter, president of the Calty Design Research studio in Newport Beach, Calif., where the car was designed.

That beak and how it runs into the hood and "fenders" is very awkward.....its worse than that....butt ugly comes to mind

The rest looks quite good....butterface.....

Exactly, $65k is too much. It is a Toyota. New Grand Sport all day for that money. Plus dealers will be marking up the V8 Supra, while you can get a Grand Sport well under msrp. I don't see the Supra coming close to C7 GS performance levels.

I think a TT V6 is more likely.
