That's a pretty impressive amount of infringement going on there. I'm not all that familiar with the issue but what is being done to stop this? I suppose the better question is, can anything be done?

This Buick Riviera concept coupe was unveiled at last year's Shanghai Motor Show and designed and built by General Motors' Shanghai Tech Center.

Big version: Width: 1280 Height: 850 File size: 143kb


The Riviera concept illustrates that Chinese designers are capable of creating terrific automotive design if their company's senior management allows them to be creative.

Well, you know what they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

They remind me of expensive watches knock offs you can buy on street markets. You get what you pay for. Except a Rolex knock off won't kill you in a car crash.

I guess it just shows chinese manufacturers are not capable of coming up with their own designs, and that they know it and aren't ashamed about it.
I'll do my own airline. With Blackjack. And hookers. In fact, forget the airline.

Some friends of my in-laws have a GWM bakkie (pickup) - http://www.gwm.co.za/home.html

They were told in the dealership that they have an agreement whereby, once the original manufacturer (eg. GM, Vauxhall, Isuzu in their case) stops making a model, and starts on the new design, they sell on the original designs, so that they (GWM) can make very similar vehicles, with less R&D costs.

This also happened with an old car of mine, a Daewoo Nexia, which was basically an old mark 2 Vauxhall Astra with a different badge. All part of the GM group.

Erm... Mazda, Toyota, and Nissan used to be copycats of Western cars, and look at what they are now!
