Anyone else see a bit of Porsche 928 in that Alfa design? Have never seen this one before! BB

Yes indeed! ;)

I remember that concept very well. It was a disappointment to me because of that similarity to the 928.

Glad I wasn't the only one. I also thought it looked a bit like a Fiat X1/9 on steroids.

Although the similarity to the 928 is obvious, I've always rather liked the design. One of the two built was regularly used in London for many years

Is it just me, or does this look really weird. I think that the proportions are way off and it almost looks like a toy.

It does look off indeed, a common Kess problem.

Not an inspiring look.

Even if this was a perfect representation of the real car it would be weird and the proportions would be way off ;)
But it isn't perfect. They should have done the same as the makers of the real thing: take a perfect model of the 928, and ruin it by adding some material.

Compared to the 1:1, it looks like someone squashed it.

Nice to see the Alfa Romeo Zeta Zagato in the flesh. It looks a little 'fat', but then so did the 1:1.

All the pics I saw on the internet of the Zeta show some minor flaws, I guess Kess has not dealt with improving they QC...
