Design Elements We Want To Bring Back

Vehicle design has come a long way over the last century, and we’ve seen some fantastic concepts come and go along the way. Since the turn of the 21st Century, we have watched the Mustang and the Challenger re-enter the market with updates done to their core elements, but we would like to see some other fashions from yesteryear make a return. If Tesla can innovate on the gull-wing, I see no reason these others stylings can’t get a modern makeover as well.



If you like the wind whipping through your hair, this feature is for you. During the late 50s through the 60s, removing the B-pillar so the windows rolled down to expose four feet of open side was in vogue. These hardtop models provided plenty of space for your drunk friends to stick their head out the window while you drove them home. While some sports coupes still do away with the B-pillar and are technically hardtops, it’s the sedans we miss. That extra air added a very literal sense of space to the vehicle that kept the front and back seats from feeling like separate compartments, plus it was great for drowning out loud kids with wind noise.

Since we’re talking about opening up space a little, our next feature seems a perfect fit.
