Saab Fashionista concept – silly name, interesting idea

My thanks to WooDz for sending the link through on this one.
The Saab Fashionista concept is a design project by a French design student named Mayeul Walser. As you can see, there’s more than just a little Aero-X in there, which is a good thing and a bad thing. You can’t top the original, and maybe the edges are a little sharp for my liking. But on the other hand, the Aero-X is a modern classic in design, a thing of beauty, so it’s a natural place to start.
The interesting thing about this concept design is that it’s been drawn up specifically to match the dimensions of the Chevy Volt. The idea is to create a four seater coupe that would fit on the Volt’s Delta II underpinnings.
The car features some funky weird doors and some good sweeping lines, though I prefer the original Aero-X’s smoother edges. I guess what I’m saying is that I’d just love for Saab to whack some normal doors on the Aero-X and then build the sucker.
This is a nice idea, but when all is said and done, the original is just too stunning to modify.
I like the idea, especially the attempt to real-size the car onto a platform that will actually be used. I hate the name and for my tastes, the Aero-X will always be a winner. But kudos to Mr Walser for having a crack at adapting it for real life, if only in a concept drawing form.

Thanks again, WooDz.
