Wedges and Curves

It just looks wrong, doesn’t it?

Porsche means curves, and while the wedge design element became such a defining shape of the 70s, it just doesn’t work for me on the Giorgetto Giugiaro designed Porsche Topiro concept. Maybe that’s why they had to pair it with curves on the stage.

    I see that John Delorean nearly got to Porsche!

    It looks good enough but I’m glad Porsche left the wedge to Lotus, Pantera and Lamborghini.

    *DeTomaso – not Pantera!

    I believe it was David E. who said something like “…all of the Giugiaro designs look like they should read…’take tab A and insert into slot B.'” Just awful stuff.

    Wasn’t this Giugiaro’s proposal for how the 914 should be redone?
    I happen to like it a lot. I think people are just freaking out because of the Porsche badges.
