Sure. But the Corvair WAS Chevy's future platform. Just look at the concept cars it inspired (including electric.) The Corvair could have been so much more if R&D funds hadn't been pirated away for the Camaro. 

What could Corvair have been if it only had a bit more distance between the cam and crank for more stroke, bigger bore, plus 2 more cylinders?

I for one believe it could have corralled the Mustang. 

No one can ever convince me that a horizontally opposed engine isn't the best engine design with one of its biggest advantages being its lower center of gravity.
