What I particularly found humorous was the authors assertion that a coupe had to be limited to 2 doors. How is he working at a car magazine and doesn't know that profile and interior volume determine whether it is a coupe or sedan? And the "assymetrical wheel" complaint like it is something new. My 93 Vette came stock from the factory with directional wheels. But then it also had different sizes front and rear and directional tires (no rotating those puppies). Point is, that is hardly a "style trend" when the Corvette had them as far back as 1984 as a functional feature to help cool the brakes on the C4.
