Mazda Shinari... Hoping the 3 GT looks more like this than the 5 GT

This guy has a pretty cool Shinari concept for Mazda. Reminds me of an Aston Martin Rapide and BMW's Gran Coupe. I'm hoping the 3 series GT will look as sleek and sporty as this. Would be a shame if it turned out like the 5 series GT.

Here's more pics and the article.

Looks like a Tesla Model S too, these low roofed long sedans are popping up all over since the mercedes sls500, vw cc, etc. Not complaining, a mazda variant would be very cool especially if they chose the right powerplant.

Panamera has it too.

Actually the roof lines are not so much low as the windows are small...that gives it that tight look

Looks pretty sick, wonder what the production model will end up looking like though...
