I love the SBR4. It's based off of quite a few of my favorite cars. I made a quick fix for it.

    What I hate is that body style.
    Shooting brake? It looks like a hatchback that gave up right at the end and became a sedan. It's essentially a coupe edit, I remember seeing one speedpaint of an SBR4 Coupe a while back, I couldn't find it.
    I tried to make it look more like an Audi R8, instead that front looks like only a Subaru BRZ. I'm not very good with making art like this, and a touchpad isn't helping. My mouse broke, so I couldn't use that.

    And compared to it's reference cars:



    Thoughts, guys? Any improvement/suggestion is greatly needed.
    I've always envisioned the SBR4 as a shared project between ETK and Hirochi, so it made sense that I tried to take design cues from an Audi R8 2010, Lexus LFA, and Subaru BRZ. The headlights were inspired by @NinetyNine!'s SBR4 2017 facelift, and my brother says that the back end/trunk part reminds him of that of a BMW M6. I tried to stay away from using the Nissan GTR as a reference, because A, it's already been done by @NinetyNine!, and B,I felt that the GTR never really resembled the original SBR4.

    Thanks for the comments!

    I never managed to see any similarity with the BRZ, especially since the styling of the SBR is known to be 100% the fruit of gabester's creativity, with pretty much no real life counterpart.

    Anyway, wouldn't a Porsche 911 be a better source of inspiration for the eventual ETK styling cues, given its mechanical layout is the closest real life equivalent to that of the SBR?

    Ah yes, I just found that out.

    It has a bit of similarity with the 2013 Toyota GT86 in the front, and if you vertically invert the front grill, it looks like a BRZ.
    I don't know, it's body style is quite similar to the Porsche Panamera, not the 911. The back end just screams R8 to me, and the front end is like a mix between GTR R35, Lexus LFA, and Toyota GT86. If I lower the main grill in the new SBR4, and make it smaller, the front end does remind me of a 911.

    The parallel was strictly on a mechanical standpoint. In terms of styling, the SBR looks nothing like a Porsche.

    Also, from a styling perspective, the Panamera was styled after the 911, so much that it could be described as a front-engined, 4-door 911. Given that the SBR lacks both characteristics, there goes the similarity.
