Design as in appearance or design as in engineering design?

Appearance wise it reminds me of the KTM XBOW...

I think that the slingshot is a vehicle that is hard to fully comprehend without seeing it in person. I think that the piecemeal body panels is a cool design theme. The whole disjointed panels thing seems to be becoming a trend in the industry. I think its not universally appealing, but at the very least it is interesting enough to grab peoples' attention.

I think it looks awesome. I'm curious to see the actual size. I watched a video review where the guy said it's basically the length of a Miata and the width of a full size pick up truck.

What happened to the rear end, it's missing ? Looks like the designers ran out of money when they got that far. They could have at least put a fender on the lonesome rear wheel. Very cool looking from the front, ugly from the side and back.

Per the specs, its slightly wider than a Miata but shorter in length. But it's close. I think when I see it in person I'm going to be surprised at how big it actually is. Still love the look though. So awesome.

the front end reminds me of an indy car or something, maybe not as much as the Atom, but it is what came to mind when i first saw pictures of it.

The basic body has a cool factor but there are a few areas that seem to need more plastic. The back week just hangs out there, saddle bags really help here. The area over the front tie back to the drivers seat seems unfinished, adding a fender really helps
The front between the turn signal and the lower fairing looks unfinished, it needs a vented filler panel to complete the look.
