The miss­ing link?

Wheels (Australia) - - Classic Wheels -

How many peo­ple to­day re­alise there is a de­sign link be­tween the 928 and the still-born 1973 two- and four-ro­tor Chevro­let Corvette con­cept cars? The Corvettes, built by Pin­in­fa­rina on Porsche 914 chas­sis, were de­signed to a large ex­tent by Tony Lapine be­fore he was poached by Porsche, and share many of the same de­sign el­e­ments as the 928. Soft cor­ners, a wide B-pil­lar, even the over­all shape of the doors, and the pro­por­tions, all look 928-ish.
