You are right about one thing,  it has an attitude.....  and the A coupe has no wheel wells because the wheels would not be in them anyway......

That roadster could be fixed though.....drop an axle under it and shorten the front up......might have been a problem of economics............took the cheap clip and got on the road...........at least the back half is ok.

Right - if they would just stand back and look at the proportions before running those final welds.....
I also think the rear is too far back, but maybe that's just the camera angle.
Definitely a low-buck build, but they could have attained a great look with the same amount of $ IMHO.
