I have tirelessly looked all over the internet to find production Z car pics and unfortunatly I have found none, and I'm guessing you've been doing the same. Well, last night I had had enough, I decided to put my PhotoShop skills to work and use some of the discriptions that car magazines and other insiders said about the production Z and turn it into an image. Some of the changes include:
No Mirror Turn Signal - CHECK
Smaller Air-Intake - CHECK
Integrated Headlight TurnSignal - CHECK
Fog-Lights - CHECK
NO Z LOGO - CHECK
UPDATED HOOD SEAMS - CHECK
New EXHAUST TIP LOCATION - CHECK
Integrated Reverse Light - CHECK
Smaller Door Handles - CHECK
...And here's the final result:

P.S. Most of the quality was lost because I converted it to JPEG format....Tell me what ya think http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/grin.gif

Ummm....I must say that this viewer is impressed. What you've done with the rear end with regards to the exhaust and reverse lights far surpasses that half hearted attempt that MotorTrend displayed.

Nice touch of motion on the wheels also. Great Job!

Personally I would like to see a small spoiler, but I can add that myself. I love it! Great job! Hey, why don't YOU work for NDI? Whip those boys into shape! http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/grin.gif

Now you put time into it!! http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/grin.gif I can tell you also have talent, no BS. http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/smile.gif I love the rear and in motion wheels. he front looks pretty good but I dont think the grille will be split like that (thats opinion http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/wink.gif). And if the (lower)grille were a bit wider and a bit lower (in height)with maybe smaller fog lights (I read somewhere it will have verticle fog lights similar to the concept whcich were signal lights anywho) then youd be darn close to the pro car IMO. A few places say it will have a smaller grille of the concept while a few others (older) say it will have a more traditional 3 grille design (like a Porsche Turbo). I cant wait to see the production car.

Not correct. Who said fog lights? Updated hood seams? Exhaust tips are round and not integrated into the body. Flares softened. Z logo still exists...but not in the original inset version. What happened to the reverse/turn lights. Door handles changed. NO bar in intake opening in the front facia.
It's a great fantasy car you "photoshopped" as are the busybees and others.

Here's the original pic on which my PS was based on...notice how the original one from Zdriver.com has higher quality, mines on the other hand doesn't due to the fact that I have still not perfected the skill of converting to JPEG format...

P.S. Thanks for the comments, please don't hestitate to tell the truth (ie no sugar-coating) the more I practice the more I will perfect my skill of photoshopping. http://forums.freshalloy.com/forum/images/icons/grin.gif

Nice. Good effort. Front end looks much better. Smaller front spoiler would be much better. Rear end is still fussy. Specially those rear end lights. But the thing you should fix are those 20inch tires and wheels. They look huge and they just messes the look of the car. 17 or 18inch should be more then enough. And one last thing, CHANGE THE COLOR. There, I feel better now.

Dude, chill out man. Who are you to judge? It's obviously not a production picture and just a photoshopped pic of what he would like to see and what he thinks it might look like for production. GREAT JOB BY THE WAY GTR!!
