OMG it is lime green! I can barely breathe. Hopefully they will announce a comparable to smart price and soon release date. Thank you so much for posting this.

Yeah. It has always been wider than the smart (more shoulder room?). It would look great in black.
I am all about this green.

Found this other picture. I read on scionlife that this could be a five axis car which is a modified version of the iq. Link below if picture doesn't show up

There is a lot of talk online that these pics are photoshopped. The one with the two halves sure looks fake (back end of a VW bug?). I guess we will know on in a week whether it was or not. I like the "smile" better on these pics than the original. Less grunty.
Go lime green!

Doubtful that the photos are frauds although they were probably enhanced with photoshop to make the images clearer. Looks like this might indeed a concept according to http://www.scionlife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=255794

fiveaxis does a lot of work for manufacturers based on their (the mfg.) drawings which makes sense as it is probably cheaper to outsource a prototype than to make it in house. Here is the fiveaxis website http://www.fiveaxis.net/

fiveaxis has done quite a bit of work on customized Scions and there appears to be an established relationship between them and Scion. Just a few days and there should be some clarity as to what Scion's plans are for the iQ.

Keeping my fingers crossed for some good news out of New York this week!

I like that lime green color, but I'm hoping they bring that deep purple color from Europe when/if they finally go on sale here.

Yeah, that purple is my second choice, but I really think something this small need to be extra visible on the road. I think they need to offer really bright colors. The purple isn't bright enough to stand out like this car should, but I do like it as a color. This year's smart car color choices are very drab and many people complained about that. I expect next year smart will offer some brighter colors. iQ needs to do that from the start. Of course, if not, I will look into wrapping it. There are some amazing wrap places out there for smart and I hope they will do that for the iQ too. How's lime green zebra sound. LOL

I hear what you're saying about small cars and bright colors, still, I like dark colors on most cars. If the purple doesn't come here, my next choice is black.
