Asking AI to create me a BMW 2002 (Baur)


Recommended Posts

It's interesting that all the non-Turbo variants have the small chrome bumpers and small fender lip flares.  It looks, though, like there's a mix of new and old grill styles.  


That single fog light on the bumper is kind of an interesting detail I've never seen.

The AI seems to like playing around with the grille/headlights/side marker details… sorta-pseudo-02s

Yeah none of them look quite right. All kind of dopey cartoonish looking. The number 8 white with blue and red one is the most realistic looking one, except for the kidney grills being too square.

These are beautiful in a very surreal way. I've been playing around with 2049 dooms-day treatments of my Targa. Hopefully I will be long gone if it comes to this demise...

As a creative working in the design/ Industrial Design world, I'm more than a bit concerned with what this new technology means for the creative industry, and the artists/creators/designers/humans behind it who have built careers in the trades that Ai (and the individuals/companies behind them) are actively plagiarising from. 


While it could be a tool for individuals, I have full realism that it will be nefariously leveraged by companies and non-creatives to cut the human side of creativity out of the design process, eliminate jobs, and effect the value of the individual. 


This applies to all aspects of creativity. Music, Illustration, Media, Design, Engineering, etc. 


Not to mention that a lot of 'AI' is also built on theft of previously created artwork, design, and development. 


Sigh... Hell in a hand-basket is where we're all headed.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
