If you look at the mask on the rear end of the C6 test car there are two styling elements that are different than the C5.
1) The outsidelights are set back further than the inside lights.
2) There is an extension of the rear end (like a wing of sorts) above the center of the car. It is probably for aerodynamics and to add downdraft to the rear wheels. Also it is like a 1963 ish styling cue where the window line is extended to teh rear of the car.

Has anyone else noticed these specific things?

Hard to say if its a wing or not. I'd be surprised if it was. ;)

Pat I think you're right about the top half of the rear end. I think the bottom half though is going to fold under toward the rear tires to cut down on the overhang.

I JUST CAN'T WAIT! :thumbsup:

Indenting the ass is one way to make it LOOK smaller without actually reducing the size of the rear.
