PURR-FECT SHAPES? No one can argue that the chauffeured transportation industry is better off with more vehilce models to choose from, than at any other time in the history of the industry. In the corporate sedan market, where we once had Lincoln-Cadillac-Mercedes-Benz, we now have Lincoln-Cadillac-Chrysler-Mercedes-Benz- Toyota-BMW.
But if you look closely at most vehicles, they all look slightly adjusted from the same template. The zeal for safety and conformity has generated an unintended side effect. This recent article in The Weekly Standard magazine makes the point:
"The cumulative effect of all these changes is a wedge shape, seen from the side, from the low nose swooping upward toward a high tail — the startled stance of a cat with its rump in the air. And what about the view from the rear? With only so many ways for stylists to efficiently “separate” moving air from that high trunk lid, thus reducing drag, there is scarcely any difference in design resolution today from one car to another."
