You have made a long list of cars. Are you saying they all have identical side profiles?

Yes, this sort of thing was often said in the past. Even now people write how all cars look alike because of aerodynamics. It's pretty odd, because I see cars that look completely unlike and yet have low drag.

Obviously I don't have the perspicacity then. Can you quote some page numbers?

Why aren't I surprised that you've now got into conspiracy theories...

No, it (the template) represents an example of a discussion group going down a rabbit hole where a theory was developed without a lot of evidence - and then grabbed joyfully because of its simplicity.
