    Anyone else see this?

    Not sure how accurate it is but was interesting to see all the different styling changes and cues.
    Cheers

    Interesting...thanks for the link. You can see quite a few influences from other manufacturers in some of the styling models.

    I agree on the influence of the other designers. I'm glad it didn't end up being the one with 4 headlamps. I never would have embraced that look. I am also glad they decided on the hatchback look for final production. Soft top Z-cars never appealed to me.

    Wow, very neat link to see the progression in the design. Who would have thought of seeing a Zed with "shark gills".

    There are quite a few around that have the "shark gill" modification, THREEZ has that done. I think it's to mimmic the Ferrari look.
