Default History of Amber Turn Signals - C7 Showcased

It's amazing how few cars in the U.S. have amber turn signals, given how they are so visible, but it is nice to know the C7 Corvette is one of them. Here is a bit of history on amber turn signals. By the way, if the spy shots are any indication, it would appear the C7 may be the first and last Corvette with amber turn signals for a while In the U.S.

With LED tech available, every car should have Amber turn signals. So much more visible.

When I was stationed in Germany, it was kinda funny to see amber rear blinkers on imported American cars. I never understood why American cars did not have amber blinkers, but now it makes sense. Go C7!

It NEVER made logical sense to me that turn signs and pumping the brake had the same light application. AMBER make much more sense.
