If you like this rendition - and you have the capability of making a Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham version - would you mind? :p

WTF is up with that rear window design with the porthole:ack:

That would actually look really nice with a conventional, more squared off rear window, with no porthole. Something similar to the 80-92 RWD Cadillac treatment, with the little quarter window on the rear door and the huge c-pillar to kind of shield the face of whoever is riding in the back.

EDIT: After looking at the Brougham, it needs about a foot more hood to give it the right proportions. All that being said, that rendering has some real potentail with a few tweaks, and could be the best looking Buick since the 1965 Riveria. AND PLEASE NAME IT THE ELECTRA 225.

With a normal roof, it would be a sharp executive limo.

With a normal roof, it would be a hell of a nice looking car, and a great 21st century version of the Roadmaster or Electra-deuce-and-a-quarter.

That profile is about as appealing as a dose of the crabs. :spider:

Rear wheels not centered, and I would totally smack my head on the roof trying to get in the back seats.

I think this Photoshop appeals to people who like to look at old cars, and would actually sell about as well as ice at the North Pole. I mean honestly- isn't making monstrous cars with outdated styling while the rest of the world got more modern the very thing that made Cadillac and Buick no longer the standard for luxury?

I suppose it's sort of neat looking, but there's not a stock broker, doctor, lawyer or executive that would be caught dead driving that over an LS460 or S-Class. If we're going to dream up modern full size luxury cars for Buick and Cadillac, let's make them fit the times.

The thing looks like a hearse! Personally, I' rather drive something a little moore upbeat. But then Dodge Magnum looks like a hearse for midgets, so I quess there could be a market!

I think a traditional long hood, short deck would look better, but I'd have to spend some serious time reworking that image to make that happen. Here's just a few quick and sloppy changes I made at work to center the rear wheel and eliminate the horrible 70's roofline and porthole:

Argh, I can't resist photoshopping it some more to fix the proportions!

Okay, I'm really quitting now and trying to get some work done.

FWD or RWD? I think the front overhang is too short for a FWD config and the hood too short for RWD.

I think it would be a winner in Shanghai! Reminds me very much of the late sixties "home market only" Nissan Century or Toyota President.

If I'm chauffeuring in an S-Class or LS460, I'm not charging $60 an hour. And I'm not getting as much work...that's why the Genesis has so much promise to me...

A big Buick is always a "ROADMASTER".

Hey, I'm just working with what I had (and quickly at that :D). The snub nose and square roof were horrible.

Not a comment toward your photochopping, just that it looks like it belongs in the water. They even gave it a waterline. :D

Without the porthole window, it's a killer car ! I love it & would definately buy it...IF it comes with a big V-8.
(400 HP minimum) I would never ever buy foreign, you can have your BMWs, Benz, Infiniti, Lexus, etc, etc.
About the only one I might consider would be a Volvo S80 Premier Elite - but...it's too small for my likes.

My 4 favorite sedans are in no special order....

1975-1979 Lincoln Continential /1974-1975 Imperial/1976-1978 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham (An Imperial with a new name) a 1992 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham or a 1991-1993 Cadillac Sixty Special.

Regading employment, my Dad was a Real Estate Attorney and my Mom was a Patent Attorney.
BOTH drove only Imperials. If they were still alive I'd bet the farm they would be in Town Cars.

Wheelbase still looks too long for my taste. Looks proportioned like a Maybach (i.e. not good...unless you're being chauffeured).

Tony, that looks amazing. You should send it to GM. The original was not bad but it needed a longer hood. Yours is really good but the back window has too much of a slope, looks like a friggin S Class.
