Manufacturer's have stated the next generation Challenger/Barracuda, Camaro, Mustang will be smaller, lighter & with a more forward design to appeal to a global market. I seem to recall it was Fiat/Chrysler/Dodge/SRT that mentioned the Genesis Coupe 3.8 as an example.

I tend to agree but if you look at the picture of your car it's the same exact thing but going to other way. Definitely not consistent with the next window.

Because it gives a bunch more visibility when the driver looks over his shoulder to change lanes, something that potential coupe owners complain about.

I've sat in one and imagined it going straight back and it would dramatically cut down on visibility.

Maybe so but it looks ugly like that.

I don't think that is dark enough to be jazz blue from what I have seen in other pictures.

This is jazz Blue and it looks darker than the one at the Auto Show: http://www.cstatic-images.com/supers...7/13261/02.jpg
