    Fun with PhotoShop, Toyota Prius to Futuristic 2054 Lexus

    With the thoughts of petrol prices rising, I think it would be nice to have a cool looking electric car if one needed it in the future.
    I made the following photoshop for fun, but if it were to be taken seriously, it would basically turn into a two seater and would need extensive suspension and roof top modification.

    Thoughts on the design?

    I actually like your Prius mod better than the original supercar! LOL
    It has a more believable windshield and a nicer hood area than the Lexus with the pug nose.
    I even prefer the mirrors you chose to those on the lexus.
    I can't help but think I'm looking at the rear end of the lexus every time I see it. It appears to travel everywhere in reverse.
    Nice job!

    No matter how much work I put into the car, it would never be as symmetrical as a machine can carve out. So I've been constructing a homemade CNC machine these last 3 months which is just about finished. I feel I wasted 2 years hand shaping it the whole time but the good thing that came out of it is the final design which Im really happy with.
    Also my next project couldnt be done without a machine too, the Auston one-seven,seven.

    If anyone else wants to build a CNC, cnczone.com is where to get started.

    Good Job.
    Suggestion: the open rear wheels will act as HUGE air scoops slowing performance of vehicle.
    I would like to see you re-work the design so the rear of the car becomes the front. With a few changes here and there it could be a very viable build.

    Your very right about the scoop, and great idea about reversing the ends... I ended up including the rear end seats with this other render but after many hours of tweaking I just gave up.

    If it was a two seater and the mirrors where down in the corners of the front windows and bullet (old retro style) headlights mounted just inside the front tire bumps (maybe frenched half in and half out) on the front hood. I WOULD BUY ONE !!!
