I do not understand what kind of person would buy an expensive car like this and then take it to RINSPEED and get it ruined by them. That thing is... I don't have words for anything that ugly.

WOW that was weird. Anyways here's the car.

Rinspeed is a swiss car maker that has the habit of turning Porsche 911's into something completely crazy.

This is really old news I believe. And sure Rinspeed does some wacky concepts, but at the same time it does some pretty good Porsche tuning as well.

You need to actually go on their website and read about the cars. They do some really weird stuff but it's usually very interesting.

Wasn't the car named ZEN or something like that? From what I have read on it, it had pretty cool features.

Rinspeed can do whatever the hell they want as far as I'm concerned. They do so much cool stuff that it's whateva.

It might be old news, but i haven't seen any good projects by them, so as far as i'm concerned RINSPEED sucks. of course as soon as i see a nice car made by them it will make it a little better, but i will still think their cars are ugly. I am sure they might have sweet features but they could make it a little nicer i mean. meh.

The seats are made of a gel that remembers the size of the driver's body. They look comfy as hell, plus they are Recaros.

I think that the car gives a nice relaxation feeling, with that glass roof and that special interior, just like its name. I investigated a bit and it is zaZen.

The seat remembers the driver? Wow that's quite amazing. Anyway, Rinspeed didn't kill the looks so much, here's an example:

^ Wacko...take a long, hard look at that. It's sexy. And when you're done...look up the Rinspeed Imola.

I did say that there probably are some good cars made by them but i didn't see any, and i did say that if i saw a nice one i will change my opinion about them.

About the Imola. They didn't ruin it but the vinyl on it is hideous.

The one Johny posted is amazing. I have changed my ways. Well not really but i do think that RINSPEED is okay now. However there are a lot of bad projects. I could post a lot more if you guys were interested.
