To me, it looks like a 762 on steroids. But it IS pretty cool nevertheless.  Wink/being sarcastic

I agree with A340600, it could also be classed as a Boeing 767-FATHEAD series

If Boeing had made it, American would have bought it for some low density ultra long haul flights. I'm sure about that. It looks pretty cool. I even wonder if Boeing didn't approach the major airlines to see if any of them would be interested in such a variant.
Yes you're right. It is at first glance a BIG 767-200.

Airlines lost interest in the -100 when the -200LR met the same performance estimates as the proposed -100 but with more passenger/payload carrying capablilty.

Makes you wonder though, if the -100(LR) airframe was produced, it would probably be able to fly half way around the world non-stop. Might have made a good presidential aircraft for some nations. I'm guessing that it would have been to heavy for a domestic version.
