    What If Today's Cars Were Designed Decades Ago?

    I saw this link and thought some of the retro concepts looked better than the "real" cars.
    The link is here. Kind of click-baity, but I posted some of my favorites below.
    Cheers,
    RR

    At least with the opels from the 1960s and 70s, the more interesting question is the reverse-what would a modern Opel GT look like?

    I love it. When I used to draw cars non-stop. I would sometimes start with a design from the 70s and imagine what it looked like when a new generation came out until it was a current design.

    Needs a 2dr Ascona, everyone else has one.

    I think they sold them here: Saturn Sky.

    Although I agree, that Mazda reminds me much more of a first gen Opel GT.

    Good point Lynn.
    Personally, I always had a hard time considering the Sky as an Opel GT.
    I like them well enough, but in my mind, the Opel GT should be a German car,
    unlike the Kappas which were American cars sold in Europe as Opels. Too late now, I suppose,
    but perhaps PSA will take it on as a vanity project.
