It's a Toyobaru (more specifically, a Toyota GT86) with a different nose:

The nose itself doesn't look bad, but to me it clashes with the styling of the rest of the car.

I think I agree... And ENOUGH ALREADY with the shaved/sculpted fenders.

That nose looks... Italian.

That looks terrible. Keep it over in Japan! Do not want.

I do like it... if the rest of the car looked like a modern Alfa Spyder

Hideous. I hope that's not the mid cycle refresh.

This continues my frustration with the Frisbee. They took an ugly car and made it uglier. Not really sure at what market this is aimed.

I can take it. I like different. It's why we paint our foglights covers and vents black, but when they come black from the factory, we want them color matched to the body. We always want what's different.

The front does look Italian now. I like it.

The rear doesn't flow at all with the car anymore.

I like it. But I also like the normal styling too.

VS.

I wish they would soften the fender lines just a tad, and add circular tail lites. I do like the look of the new face, but agree it doesn't really fit on the car.

Put the new face on the ND?

First person to make a rip off nose and market it here to the JDM YO! Fanboi set will make a mint on bad taste as always

I see a bit of current P-car in the nose and headlights.

Don't mind it...

I think they are trying to make it into a ND coupe. I like the front ok, but not sure if it goes with the rest of the car very well.

yes, it is rather Panamera-ish. Removing those thin light strips would help. (would look a little Calloway-like then). Looks better in silver than red, but not a fan overall. The front plate really makes a mess of it.

I like the grill, the headlamps should've been flush

I see part Porsche, part Jag, and all the quality of old Hyundai to rip something off, and change it enough to make it look worse....

I thought I was going to like it, because so many people here hated it... I was wrong.

Well, now the JDM freaks can go nuts putting a cB nose on their USDM cars.

It looks fantastic from a 3/4 view, but terrible from nose-on:

Hi! I'm a Chrysler Sebring coupe!

I thought it looked pretty good, and I don't think it clashes with the body lines.
