    The right side rear view mirror sticks out two inches more than the driver's side.

          Also gives more justification for the “folding mirror” option. If nothing else to protect the mirror from the careless passerby/motorists in parking lots/stalls.

            Think that comes with the 2lt.

              I don’t notice it that much, but it is probably me. I’m cross-eyed without my glasses. Appreciate the trivia.

                Road and Track properly gives credit to the Corvette Blogger. The back story is that Keith pointed this out to me yesterday, so I grabbed my pocket tape measure and my camera and we confirmed that the passenger side mirror arm extends about 2 inches farther than the drivers side. Read Keith's blog post on this tidbit here:

                    Visually in person its really not noticeable...unless someone tells you..l

                    one day that will be a tiny camera on the side of the car instead of a mirror...

                    i believe audi has that in europe on one of its vehicles but in the USA that side view camera alone would be illegal.

                    i bet the aero without the side view mirrors is quite a bit better.
