Wow. I am totally like, squeeing at these. It's remarkable how successfully this design translated into production. I've been seeing the car more and more on the roads, and I knew even from the first day it was debuted that if I were in the market for a midsizer, I'd go for one of these in a microsecond. It's a shame that GM is in so much financial trouble with the slumping economy as of late, because they finally hit the nail on the head with regard to design on this one.

Many details changed in production ... the BMW 1-Series headlights and Corvette/Cobalt round taillights obviously changed, but who's to say that it may not go this direction in a future refresh? Maybe they were saving these design cues for an SS version?

I don't like the first sketch, but the second one is nice. I love those taillights.
