Time certainly enables you to see design cues from specific periods.  The Italians seem to have been reading from the same manuscript, remove the front spoiler and it could be a Fiat X19, the rear two thirds screams Alfa GTV to me. I wonder if the original design had the front spoiler and rear side wings, would be a far purer shape with those deleted.

Certainly, not surprising you may see the X1/9 in the car. The Jalpa being based on the Silhouette, the Silhoutte designed by the master Marcello Gandini, who also penned the X1/9 (derived from the Autobianchi Runabout concept). In terms of original design, you can see the more pure form in the earlier Uracco, also drawn by Gandini..on which the Silhoutte was based.

I wish we see more of these concept cars turned into reality in their original shape 😥 maybe one day...

Skoda has a pretty good record of releasing production cars reasonably faithful to the concept.  Things like the bespoke interior, lights and bumpers usually change and I expect in this case the frameless windows will also go.

that's the problem, those most important parts (interior, lights and bumpers) which makes those cars unique are changed :(

another one I've seen yesterday, smaller crossover...

I can only wish the interior stays...

 

some makers are doing some great interiors the new peugeot 508 looks a good example where interior has come across pretty well for the production car...

The really interesting thing is it's using super caps with batteries. Imagine those in your favourite amplifier!

This looks the result of BMW getting busy with Toyota recently.
