Like all these modern retros you can't just pull old classic lines and try to merge them with new modern design they just don't work

My biggest bugbear with modern retro and all modern cars in fact are the massively thick A pillars.

There are elements of most modern retro design that work in isolation, but I can’t recall any that work as a whole. The modern take on the Stratos looks ok in pictures - until it’s anywhere near the original. Can anyone suggest otherwise?

That was a missed opportunity. When they showed that car I so wanted them to make it.

That’s a great shout and one I’d forgotten. Very cool.

I guess some of the yank ones are ok in dark colours to hide the chunkiness. The Giugiaro Mustang always catches my eye in a good way, but again parked next to an original, they just look fat.
