Ford Fairlane gets the approval. Interesting enough the Fairlane resembles the Range Rover design with minor tweaks.

Keeps me thinking how on earth you can resemble that much an existing vehicle but still Fairlane is the sign of the changing SUV scene in the US. The famous US SUV concept is becoming much more European at least in terms of design, which is also evident in Infiniti designs.

Implications - Designs that borrow from competitors slightly can be an interesting way to innovate. Through using minute elements from other competitors designs businesses can crete products that incorporate what has worked in the past, while adding new individual features. Slight similarities will continue to be inevitable between competitor's designs and with such they should be embraced across all industries.
