He lost me at 1:39 where he said they feel they can call it a 4 door sports car (Nissan may have that trademarked - 4DSC - from the early 90s by the way) instead of a sports coupe due to the fast roofline..

Hooydonk's legacy: handsome but too conservative designs...

This will probably be his most wild design.
