I have a feeling that some unknown car news site will use that Audi Miata as a thumbnail for their clickbait, fake article titled “Audi and Mazda working together on a NEW CAR!??!?!? (NOT CLICKBAIT)”
WHAT IS THIS SORCERY
Here is a very rough, poorly matched representation of what I think the 2018 Honda Accord could look like:
I also share your disappointment with front ruining an otherwise rather nice side profile. At the time I tried a couple of attempts at fixing it with varying degrees of success. But after seeing your effort I tried a few more ideas out.
Removing black bit of original grill.
Adding Mazda 6 lower grill and blacking out chrome strip
Honda CRV headlights, blacken chrome strip, Mazda 6 lower grill and previous gen Accord upper grill
Honda CRV headlights and grill, Mazda 6 lower grill and previous gen Accord upper grill
Honda CRV headlights, Honda Pilot grill, Mazda 6 lower grill
That last one looks boss! The Pilot grille really goes well with the horizontal chrome unibrow.
Literally all of these look much better than the original
EDIT: The second last one actually reminds me of the current Tesla Model S
That Pilot grille does work great on there.
I think the new Tesla Model 3 looks pretty good, but from some angles it has slightly awkward proportions. So here’s my take on it
Oh man I’d be all over that
Hmm… Some new Mazda (front of the door), Jag F-type (front end), Tesla (rear of the door), some Lexus (front quarterpanel)…
Good guesses… but all wrong
Hint: there’s only two cars used in the photoshop there, and one of them was used for a very minor part. The photoshop is about 90% the other car
I’m heavily reminded of the Opel Monza concept but it’s not that… and I’m finding it hard to believe it’s only based on two cars. Yeah, no I really don’t know which cars they are if it has to be just two cars.
