Even new Honda'* require an antenna adapter. There antenna'* are powered, which means tapping into a switched line when doing an aftermarket radio.

I can guarantee that the antenna connector is NOT a VW design, but instead a design that VW uses....

and it made sense for GM to use it as well with the dock-and-lock set up

And as I said, Ford uses them in a few vehicles also.

Oh, I just remembered another Ford that uses them- Taurus. The connection at the tuner in the trunk is the VW style adapter.

I'm with Toasty, it isn't necessarily that they designed it, it'* more or less what they just used.
