This is something from a universe somewhere between TOS, the original movies, and the Abramsverse.
Wouldn't it be more accurate to say that it somewhere between the original movies and the new movie? I am not seeing a lot of direct influence of the TOS design here. We've got orange nacelles I guess...
Well, there's the pin-striping, the shuttlebay doors, maybe the shape of the bit around the lower navigation dome, and the solid outboard paneling on the warp nacelles. Plus your aforementioned orange nacelle domes.

Mind you, I'm not suggesting this falls neatly into any particular lineage, but rather that it stands (if one were to think of it as an alternative Enterprise) off in its own little reality. You know, the one where Jack Lord and Martin Landau played Kirk and Spock.
