Why would auto makers want Gorilla Glass technology in their cars? It would make them lighter, which would result in increased fuel economy and better performance - win, win, right? According to Corning's senior vice president, Jeffrey Evenson, who expects at least one high-end manufacturer to bake their Gorilla Glass technology into their cars to replace their windows by next year. Not only will it make the car lighter, but it would also act as a sound deadening material which will reduce road and wind noise.
