    Now design critic for Automobile, Robert Cumberford (who lives in LA) began his career at age 19 as a designer for General Motors. Among his many projects there were six versions of the Corvette, beginning with 1956. He later worked on designs at Saub, Renault, Citroen, and elsewhere.

    In my mind, his declaration of the Model 3 as an excellent design is a distinguished honor.
