I see a fusion of XJ and Tesla Model S in the overall shape and stance.
Maybach inspiration in the swooping dash and interior elements.
Excited to see the 24" HUD???!!! Any pics out there yet?

I see what you mean about the resemblance to the Lacrosse, from the front 1/4 view looking at the rear. In fact, it also popped in my head even before your post and so did the Altima to some degree (belt line crease, front fender curve, etc) if we really want to start tearing it apart, but nowadays, which 3-box cars don't have some resemblance or styling cues to one another? However, with this said, I do wish the styling was less "bloaty" from the front 1/4 view at the rear and more edgy like the LF-FC.I think the XJ is what they were TRYING to do, but they failed.
