Well, I have to agree with you.

It is not a PF Mazda 6 (190mm or 200mm) The cabin is too small and on the door sides there is an embossed line that does not exist on the PF Mazda 6.

It is not a ride body, because it is simply not similar to them..

It is not a Tamiya Subaru legacy B4 ver. 1 or ver.2 mainly because of the three wing supports at the rear

It is not a Blitz body
It is not the Rayspeed body.
It is not the Yokomo Stratus E
It is not the PF Nemesis.

So I guess it was just a prototype body...

Thanks guys for all your feedback.
Just being curious..

Default Mystery body

I can't say I know what body that is in the photos, however I have no problems identifying its origins. I know its not a Blitz body because its too "original" in appearance. If it proves to be a successful body, they (Titan Blitz) will surely backpour it within a month or two and simply change its name and perhaps the shape of its headlights or grill.

Thumbs down Titan Blitz

dontfeelcold - to answer your question, yes this is what Blitz did to have their own Mazda 6's. As a matter of fact EVERY body that they have on their web site is a blatantly stolen PROTOform design including their Lola T530. I'll bet they couldn't even produce a photo of a "real" T530.( a 1983 vintage CanAm car) They simply add door-rub strip or round off an edge or corner here and there a bit, but the profiles and shapes are all PROTOform's. Even the waste lexan between the rear bumper and wing has the indenticle shape and angles. What are the odds of that being a "coincidence?" They sometimes change the name thinking it will fool someone. Names are usually changed to protect the innocent - but not at Titan Blitz. Thay change the name to protect the guilty. They are showing their latest release, a Mazda 3 - but it's actually the PROTOform 200mm Nemesis with different headlite/grill lines, a little peak in the center of the hood, and door-rub strips. Five minutes work for them as opposed to the month I spent on the project. We spend the big bucks on licensing, they operate under the legal "radar screen".
It's stealing, and its criminal but they probably don't care. It's an easy buck for Titan Blitz. They may end up succeeding in the marketplace or even on the racetrack, however they are losing bigtime in the most important "race". The "race of life" where honesty and integrity are nesessary ingredients.
