Too bad the production cars didn't carry over some of the concept designs. Except we didn't need any of the Pontiac Aztek designs to carry over at all because it started out being butt-ugly. I guess we need to keep in mind that production cars are made to be idiot proof. By that I mean production cars are designed for total safety and avoid any real driving experience by the driver. For instance to me, the ideal stance of a car is to have it lowered enough to get rid of the 3-4" gap between tire and wheel well, but for Joe Public this would create massive problems. If you look at the concept cars, most have been lowered to make it look good. People would be suing the car companies if they made production cars similar to the concept cars. For most cars, we live in an idiot proof boring world, but this is perfect for most consumers. Besides the mechanics of a car, the designs are geard for boring people. That Nissan concept version was very nice looking, but Nissan needed to cater to millions of buyers instead of a few thousand. Ugly cars are why I don't buy a new car very often. Our current decade of car designs have been created by someone wearing a blindfold.
