Corvette driver is being defended on Reddit despite being stopped in two parking lots. Users see an error with the parking lot operator.

Finding a good parking space is not so easy. Either because everything is parked or other drivers are not very accurate with markings and block several parking spaces at the same time. Especially in the last case, the confusion is often great. But there is another way, as a post on Reddit shows.

User “Adam_Exists” has a photo of one parked in a parking garage Chevrolet Corvette – which will soon be electric – divided. So far, so unspectacular. However, the sports car appears to be in two parking spaces. “He parked like this and then went on vacation,” Adam_Exisit wrote in a post on the subreddit that was a little annoying.

Whether the Corvette is wrong or right is not entirely clear.

The Corvette driver parks in two parking spaces – and they are secured

However, if you look closely at the photo, it quickly becomes clear that the driver of the Corvette may not have stopped in two parking spaces on purpose. The wheel block – which is widely used in the USA – is installed in such a way that it is on both parking spaces. A fact that has not been hidden from Reddit users as well: “The incorrect placement of the parking lot is more annoying than the parking process.” In addition, the driver of the Corvette seems to find one of the few parking spaces where the wheel center is located. not centered.

Ten cars with internal combustion engines that we will miss

Audi TT
Audi TT: Considered the flagship model of the Audi brand, the compact sports car built as a coupé and roadster will have no successor. This is also due to the lazy requirements of the design icon. Stromer compared will look completely different. Until the end of the year, the TT can still be ordered from 39,700 euros. © Audi AG
Mercedes Benz Class
Mercedes A-Class: The small car no longer fits Mercedes-Benz’s new concept of offering premium sedans, SUVs and sports cars in particular. The convincing concept of the early A-Class, to create as much space as possible in a small car, would have been useful in the electric age – but now it has been watered down. The base Benz is still available from 28,393 euros. © Mercedes Benz
Porsche 718 Boxster
Porsche 718 Boxster: Although Porsche is still fighting for the combustion engine, it will probably only last for a long time in the 911. In 2025, the Boxster and Cayman will be used only on request and later as a basis. Versions with six-cylinder boxers in particular offer almost electric characteristics such as smooth running and pulling power – with a long range (for a sports car) and low weight. Current price: from 60,061 euros. © Daniel Wollstein/Porsche
Jeep Wrangler
Jeep Wrangler: The off-road icon is no longer available as a pure combustion engine. A plug-in hybrid will run as long as it’s allowed, but it won’t make the jump into the electric age. The battery-powered successor may be as modern as the current Land Rover Defender, but still offers excellent off-road qualities thanks to its electric motors. At 77,500 euros, the classic has now become a luxury car. © Stellantis
The VW Golf is being replaced
VW Golf Cabrio: Basically, we’ve been missing it since 2016. The open VW T-Roc can’t replace the charm of the open compact car, which started its career as a “strawberry basket” with handles. This will probably also apply to an electric convertible based on the VW ID.3 – if it comes at all, which is doubtful given the weakening demand for open cars. © Volkswagen
Fiat 500
Fiat 500: Although the current version of the small car is only produced as an electric car, the predecessor can still be ordered. In the Stellantis group, however, his end is decided. The economical hybrid version with 70 hp is an ecologically sensible version, for example for those who do not really want an electric car – such as city dwellers who do not have the option of fast charging. The combustion engine can still be ordered from 15,501 euros. © Stellantis
Mercedes Benz SLC 300
Mercedes SLC: The small roadster debuted – as the first convertible with a folding hardtop – under the name SLK. Now it wasn’t the growth of electronics that ended her career as a feminist, but a decline in demand. In the future of the electric luxury car portfolio from Mercedes, affordable fun-to-drive models are certainly not planned. © Mercedes Benz
Lamborghini Huracan
Lamborghini Huracán: VW’s Italian subsidiary resisted electrification for a long time, but it certainly can’t get around it. The Huracan’s pure V10, naturally aspirated, unmixed with hybrids and turbos, will earn its place as one of the pinnacles of the combustion engine era. Its power of 640 hp would be achieved with a little effort with electric motors, but be that as it may: the fact that such cars will no longer exist is as good as a pity. Price: from 190,274 euros. © Charlie Magee
BMW Z4
BMW Z4: Yes, it’s still alive! Unlike Mercedes-Benz, BMW continues its middle road, the partnership with Toyota makes it possible. But even if BMW wants to continue building combustion engines, the successor is uncertain. If we’re wrong and there will be a Z4 with (as usual with BMW) combustion and electric options in the future: even better. If you do not want to rely on it, you should invest at least 46,200 euros. ©BMW
Tina Ruland in Opel Manta
Opel Manta: Actually, we had already written off the Manta as an eighties exclusive. Then Opel stirred the imagination with the announcement of the electric Mantas: a two-door coupe, light, with enough range for a trip to the discotheque (that’s what the clubs were called) and in the quarry pool, that would be good. a piece of chaos among all the efficient and intelligent streamers. But only a regular battery-powered SUV will come out again, which the marketing specialist holds the Manta inscription. We will miss the real one. © Rights Managed/Imago

Corvette drivers park in two positions – “I can imagine that I feel the same way”

And the lines of the two parking lots are hard to discern. For another user it is clear that the Corvette driver is not at fault here: “This is the fault of those who failed in the design and/or maintenance of parking spaces. It seems they are trying to be cheap and use a two seat threshold. I can well imagine that I feel the same way. Should I follow the worn and faded lines or the same level as any parking lot I have ever seen in my life?” Many users have similar views and assume that the owner race car he did nothing wrong. “I agree and add ‘This happens a lot in this parking lot,'” adds one Reddit user.

Editor’s note: This article has already appeared before. He really attracted many readers. That’s why we’re releasing it again.

However, the response to such parking maneuvers is not always positive. In the United States a man took revenge on a parking offender in a surprising way. And in England the BMW driver got an angry letter because he was standing on the side of the road. And Reddit user “Adam_Exists” is just a little upset, too, because he understands that the parking lot may have confused the owner of the sports car.
