You have Turkish designer Ugur Sahin to thank for the Ferrari Dino Concept you see above. Sahin has nothing to do with Ferrari, and the car above is sprung from his imagination ... but if the actual Dino unveiled in Frankfurt happened to look just like this, we wouldn't be at all disappointed. His goal was to update the Dino while keeping the rounded styling language of and trademark rear window of the original. From our view, it's mission accomplished. The most interesting thing about the concept is that Sahin is actually studying international hotel management -- he only designs on the side. May we suggest a change of major, Mr. Sahin?

      So it seems I'm not the only one who thought it looked like a new Corvette. I really think that the back of it is what brings the C6 to mind, but the rest of the car has similarities as well.

      looks like a mix between a Porsche and a Corvette...

      Its a solstice, unrealistically red with a hatchback.

      Very nice... doesn't quite match the flair of the original... but neither do any production ferraris capture my esteem like the cars which make the rounds at pebble beach et-al.

      Looks like a 'Vette? Now, I read by a commentator here that the 'Vettes copied Ferrari's long ago. So who is copying who? Can someone set the story straight?

        Someone once said, "They all have four wheels."

      Not bad, modern Ferrari front with a classic rear end treatment. I really like hte way he did the back end. Size looks about right, but I am going to guess that the driver will be sitting a little more towards the front to get a nicer weight balance. also rear vis looks horrible

      The proportions are all wrong. The packaging lacks that signature Ferrari muscular elegance.

      Nice model, though.

      That concept looks more Ferrari-like than some Ferrari's!

      Very well done...

      Lovely, but impossible.

      The Dino is almost surely going to be mid-engined. The rear end on this car is way too short to accommodate the rumored V8.
