The Sports4 looks like a cheap copy of the Mazda 6.
Absolutely booooring design imo .

The FCX on the other hand has a very interesting silhouette. 8)

I think that they must have hired a bunch of completey INSANE people!

However, I like the dog space. If it includes its own cliimate control, that would be ideal. They seem to have a blower pointed at the dog. Perhaps that is to simulate the 'head out the window' feeling since the dog apparently would not be able to do that anylonger when placed in his little dog box space.

The WOW is fun, but I would rather see the flat rear entry like in the Element for easy in and out of stored item.

I am sure they'll fast a few more weaks and when completely delerious come up with some lizard and rat seats as well...

Problem with a rotary hybrid, is that while rotary offer some of the best rpm limits and torque in ICE designs, thay are also the LEAST FE of ICE designs... why make it a hybrid? To keep the FE close to a standard ICE?

I'm not sure about the fuel economy. At least with my old RX3, it wasn't too bad on the highway, but made up for it by being terrible around town. (I had to drive long distances - like Phoenix-Las Vegas-Gallup - then, so was usually cruising 80+ and still averaging in the high 20s). So if the hybrid could be used to keep the rotary running at its best efficiency, maybe the fuel economy would be ok.
