The current Toyota Prius is a huge success and has generated a huge new market for toyota. With a new hybrid technology being developed at Toyota R&D, the companies officials have asked for you the designers to create a new 3rd Generation Prius. The previous attempt by designers did not strike any notes with the board,<p><A HREF="http://www.carspyshots.net/zerothread?id=19717&page=4" TARGET="_blank">http://www.carspyshots.net/zer...age=4</A><p>so a 2nd attempt is needed. The board wants something new, hip and modern. The new hybird technology will allow you to design the car with less aerodynamics in mind, so there can be more freedom on the shape.<p>A traditional sedan is preferred in the United States, while else where a Hatch is the option Toyota wants to invest in.<p>Rules<br>-any original image can be used<br>-either a hatch or sedan, can do both but no extra points awarded for that<br>-single entries only<br>-should have some aspects of current toyota design to make the car feel like a Toyota<br>-contest ends Wednesday July 5rd<p>Good luck.

I'll be in if anyone knows a good source for high quality Toyota press images. Specifically, the FT-SX, Fine-S, ccX, and Fine-X. Like I said, if anyone knows a good place where I can find those, then I'll be in for sure.<br>

Hey, Mil, I like your overall car. But after you put "Meh, this is rubbish!" it looks like rubbish. I really like that grille. You shouldn't put yourself down like that. You should be trying your best, taking your time, then be proud of your work.

yeah, seeing the contest coming to a close meant i had to rush it. Aswell, i dont have much time (with school just about to end etc.)

Here's mine. The base image is the same as Theo's, but I think ours turned out pleasantly different despite the same humble beginnings. I would have done more, but I ran out of steam towards the end.<p><IMG SRC="http://img101.imageshack.us/img101/6378/toyotasmall8fw.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><A HREF="http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/329/toyotabig2io.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://img208.imageshack.us/im...o.jpg</A>

Wow, I really like that one JBlair. I just got one question, is the Prius getting more minivan-like towards the future? Nice job, Theo,Mil,and Jblair.

in an attempt to make these contests more successful, i think we should do a voting process with 2 or more cars on which we'd like to do like for what we do on the other photoshop contest.

we should also do it anonymous, like people with chops email them to ascariss and then he posts them with a letter on each chop in the voting thread. this would eliminate a bias towards any user and their chops are anonymous. thats what gmi does and it works really well.

Ascariss

I'm up for the voting via email.

you should check out the voting system at gmi. it works really well. you dont have to do it but it would be worth a try.
