Thank you for posting a pet peeve of mine...
The first car in which I recognized that arkward spandrel? "zwickel" in front of the passenger was the C6 Audi
A6 interior. Never knew how that curve whent in. The predecessor and current model don't have it.
A lot of "sports car" interiors like Lamborghini, Jaguar F-Type and the new Viper followed the general mold
of positioning the instruments, navigation and vents, but most of them avoided a decorative stripe in this place.
The new Corvette now has it, too....
So back to the new Corvette Stingray:
* Why did they lose the Corvette trademark rear glass house?
* Are the new Corvette and the new Viper intendetly blurring into the same car?
P.S.: They will offer the split windows of the prototype as a mid cycle refresh, I'd bet !
I am not young enough to know everything.
