i like it but, IMO, its lacking the trade mark altezzas, hence the name Altezza, not to mention the circle tail lights. frown

It does NOT need Altezzas. Altezzas = rice. It looks very good as it is.

It does look like the tC from the side view...but it looks completely different from the front view. Also, I think Sicon is releasing a new concept at the New York Auto Show...it's called the t2B or something.
