Well, i dont know about you guys but in my opinion new cars are getting uglier. Sure most new cars have about a million safety features, most new cars do have a 6 cylinder engine (we have come a long way =P) and in general better cars. But in looks, major decrease.

Example~

read the text above the pictures

Lanevo IV-Better~


Lanevo X-To worse~


Mazda RX7-Better~


Mazda RX8-To worse~


These are just examples that everyone should be aware of, but there are ALOT more, alot of concept cars these days look like crap.

Yeah, just take a look at Honda/Acura's design direction.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE JOKING~!
i am somehow fine with the lan evo series.
but dude, rx7 & rx8? those are seriously classics!
n if u were to study in-depth into rx8's concept, u'll be amazed at how the various uses of simple geometrical designs combined to give rx8 its distinctive curves
n rx7 - nothing better to say. its equivalent to beauty of jessica alba, dude!

sure some cars are getting worse in looks, but in no way are those degrading cars the above cars u showed us!

guess it depends on what you grow up with. should have posted pics of the RX cars in totally stock form. IDK, I like vehicles from the 60's - abhor the one's from the 70's and 80's (with some exceptions), and don't like the styling direction most of the current or newer vehicles is taking. BTW, I didn't grow up with 60's vehicles - I just appreciate them more because later vehicles seem more boring style-wise to me.

Weird thread since appearances are tough to gauge. Most people actually like the new Evo styling better.

While the 7 is beautiful, many people also love the look of the 8. You also can't compare the two since they technically are different cars. The 8 also is a great body design in terms of performance. I just wish they didn't compromise and ruin it with the 3rd door and back seats in hopes of selling more to the mainstream market.

Think about other cars. Not just 2 new cars you happen to dislike. The corvette models are considered to be much better by appearance. The new BMW lines look incredible. Lots of people love the look of the new civics (not to mention they are winning more awards this decade than the last). Corollas handle worse now but look better than the last models. Not to mention the AE86 every fanboy loves isn't really pretty. People are just telling themselves it looks nice because of Initial D or drift videos. Some cars look better. Some look worse. I don't see how that is a surprise.

I said, some new cars are not so uglier, but maybe the design of a car people don't like

Im suprised nobody has started bitching about the new NSX being FR layout and ruining the whole aspect of being an NSX (though in truth the first gen looked like a testarossa).

The 2001 Trans am are ugly, over sized pieces of crap compared to the 77-78 models.

than again, some companies like Ferrari never change their look in over 3 decades, and who wants that?

i don't think all new cars are getting uglier. Yes to some models. However, most i believe is getting sexier.
