GMC Granit concept. Anybody take a look at the new Granite Concept by GMC. I don’t know what car designers are thinking anymore. Sometimes I wish 2012 would just show up already.
This car looks like they took the egg of the Nissan Cube and forced the sperm of the Honda Element for fertilization. Now that I think about it. It sort of looks like the abortion child of the Pontiac Vibe after the Dodge Calibre left because, well, he’s a deadbeat and no one likes him. Sales weren’t too high. The sad reality is that there are more and more cars starting to come out trying to fill some sort of imaginary compact/luxurious/spacious/futuristic void. And there is no need for it. The Granit concept looks like it tried too hard and had a haemorrhage during the second trimester. I don’t know why automotive companies feel they need to go this route. I mean why not take a few steps back. Apply the phoenix mythology to the 60’s and 70’s era of American automotive design. Because this…this just looks like the kind of car you invite to your party because you feel bad.
But as ugly as it is on the outside. It’s got a little bit of a “beauty is not skin deep” moniker going on. The interior is something crafty and of advanced appeal. It’s got this sort of Feng Shui juju where everything is snowed in sleek. The appearance is very fluid almost water like as if it was all natural instead of the very ordinary lego piece that are in almost all cars. So does a classy unique interior save the car? Sorry GMC. Maybe you should have used some of those bailout funds on creative aspects. Besides i-Robot came out on dvd already. I don’t think it did so good.
