91/2 Firebird GFX vs McLaren 600LT

Now I'm not suggesting the 91 Firebird GFX has its roots in motorsports, and making the 91 much more than a swan song cosmetic makeover to help keep the car looking contemporary, however (lol), notice how the side GFX of the more purposeful McLaren has a flick up ahead of the rear wheel that continues to the rear bumper.

Not completely unfounded that the 91 GFX may have had, or been inspired by, some sense of function.

Hmmmm....

hmmmm. I can nearly see how it how could provide some downforce for the rear as it captured and channeled air along the lower sides of car. Though I suspect and meaningful downforce would be over 100mph
