If you want to use a car analagy, check out the original dodge charger, and then the latest version. Same car, moved with the times..something that sometimes its a good thing to do...
Personally, I'd go with a Dodge Challenger analogy. The new Challenger resembles the old one, but with a more modern look. I don't like the new Charger, because it looks nothing like the old one. The new Enterprise reembles the old one, with a few modern tweaks, much like the Challenger. Besides, I really like the new Challenger and I like the new Enterprise.
