Citroën Karin

April 23rd, 2009

I’m a little disappointed with car design lately, I haven’t seen anything new that I found interesting. Why don’t we see anything like the Citroën Karin, a concept car designed by Trevor Fiore in 1980, anymore? Just keep it simple.

    I remember this in Road & Track when I was a kid. Citroen styling sorta lost its balls after the XM. Citroen decided not to take us into the future anymore.

    One bright spot was the recent Lancia Fulvia concept. It payed proper homage to the past while being properly modern, attractive and Italian.

    Europe has always had the edge on design.

    Meh. Just not my style I guess.

    A design concept carried to its extremes. Full credit for trying, but from a practical standpoint, could you imagine driving this every day? Climbing over seats each time to drive? Imagine getting into this car in the rain .. you’d have several liters in the car before you close the door (I assume the ope upward like a gull-wing).

    Still, I would welcome Citroën pushing automobile design again. Renault did to Citroën as GM (later) did to SAAB.
