There hasn’t been a 3-door Skoda since Volkswagen took over. I wonder why? But then again, sales of 3-door hatch is shrinking, so much so, Renault and Peugeot is not making 3-door variants of their (next) Twingo, Clio, 208, and 308.
Rendered with close reference to the Skoda Rapid Sport Concept, my impression of the Fabia vRS has a standard bonnet, black roof, one-tone body paint and simplified front bumper and rear diffuser.

According to Paul Tan, Skoda is planning to revive the Rapid with Skoda’s version of the Volkswagen Vento (Polo Sedan) for the Indian market. The Rapid’s styling might be derived from the Skoda Concept Design displayed at this year’s Geneva Auto Show. Coincidentally I’ve also did another set of Skoda Rapid coupe renderings (the original […]
The above is my entry for Carspyshots.net Photoshop Contest 10. The contest’s theme is to create a new model for any car manufacturer with strong retro design cues. I was thinking a modern day Audi Quattro or Toyota Corolla Levin (AE86), but someone has already done that and even made some prototypes. Then I saw […]
Land Rover LRX, will go on sale in 2011 badged as a Range Rover. “Our research of the LRX proved that if we can deliver the intent of the concept it has got all the hallmarks of a Range Rover,” Popham told Autocar. At the moment Land Rover is describing the car as a “compact […]
