There was a rumor I heard about 30 years ago that some new form of tailfin was about to flood the showroom floors.

Turned out it was those drag causing trunk lid wings and spoilers we saw so much of in the late 1980's.

Things do come back in fashion, never quite the same way twice though.

The 2016 Vision 6 had a Length-to-height ratio of 4.290.
Jaray's Cd 0.13, 1922 pumpkin seed was only 4.006.
I don't know what the crowd's reaction to the Maybach was,but I'd like to know.
