Saw this on another forum. It's a Photoshop rendering but it's pretty cool looking .

Maybe just buy a triumph GT6 instead if that is what they are going for?

I like the glass section better in the Datsun rendering. Reminds me of a 64/65 Plymouth barracuda only the mini me version.

There are a few of the fast back hard tops floating around.
I remember when no one wanted the 1500s......

They are hilarious. You open the trunk panel on the fiberglass fastback hardtop and then you open ANOTHER trunk on the roadster to get into the trunk. NOT very well thought out.

Why buy a roadster if you are going to use one of those? I have a hard top I have used once and stored for seventeen years.

Not to mention, the're' god awful ugly! Now the Marlin, a beautiful fastback design wasted on an pedestrian marque.

I think the Buick Riviera boat-tail is the best looking fast-back ever made.
