Three portholes versus four portholes
It would seem that PG1964 is trying to get some commentary on a statement of dubious value? The idea of having a break-point in porthole count at certain displacement points is absurd. A larger car can feature additional portholes to be sure! Perhaps "absorb stylistically" would be a more accurate description?
One need only make a listing of Vignale-bodied cars that have four, three, two, one or none of the portholes to disprove this statement even if the displacement break-point is shifted and multiplied.
Whoops! Too late! It would seem that it is already "fact". This new myth has now appeared in a book and a magazine and online. We have to pity the future enthusiast who tries to make sense of history as interpreted by creative writers who seem determined to create a "scoop" if they cannot find one legitimately.
