This week we are going to be reworking those companies that have got stuck in a rut.

Car makers such as Audi, Aston Martin and Porsche often get accused of never changing their styling and are the subject of jokes for just stretching a design to fit different cars.

Your challenge this week is to take such a car maker and create a new design theme for them - using as little inspiration from previous cars as possible.

Contest will be open until 23th November 2011.

....how is that anything like the point of the contest? Pretty sure it's got to be something everyone can recognize as a change in styling direction...

I'm making the rear is inspired by the 1999 insight and the sideskirts inspired by the 1939 Buick Y-Job.

Guys, calm it down - it was a fair question.

I think for this contest it would only work if people can compare the past and future design language so using your own car maker isn't going to be allowed. Sorry.

It's alright, but I get this chaos all the time.
