    Cars that look like the Z8?

    Why don't we get a few cars that look similar to the Z8?

    I've got a few that I think have similar designs or design cues of the Z8:

    There's the 507, obviously.

    What do you think about the Fiat Barchetta's front lights? Don't you think it looks sort of like an uglier, weedier version of the Z8? Mind you, I still really like the design!

    I'd also say the front of the Ferrari 250 Lusso is similar.

    Finally, what do you think about this rendering of the new Mercedes AMG GT convertible? I think the back from the side profile especially reminds me of it.

    I have always found that the Jag E-Types share many traits.

    The tail lights of the 911 991 look a lot like those of the z8 to me:

    How about the Aston Martin V-8 Vantage?

    Aside from the front view, I think the recent Jag XK-F roadster, particularly in profile, is almost a clone of the Z8, right down to the "gills" on the front fenders. Of course, Jaguar could argue that the XKF takes some of its styling cues from the E-Type roadster, from which Fisker clearly poached some of the contours when designing the Z8, expecially the rear/side view.
