Us motorheads might not want them but we may be a dying breed. I believe there is strong demand for them, and they are an ideal vehicle for certain use patterns.
I read this with great anticipation that we might discover more about the Safety N*zies, but alas, no expansion into other contemporary design specifications. I have loathed BMW's pedestrian-safe tall front grills for years, and indeed, dubbed them "Frau Catchers" when they first appeared.
But the flip-side of that is how does Porsche get away with their low-sloped noses? Is there a minimum production threshold that Porsches avoids the homologated high grills? Or, having been whooped by Porsche lawyers once, maybe regulators just don't go there?
Insight would be welcome.
