To give credit where credit is due, Tesla is the only company I can think of that has succeeded in doing that.
Car makers will use fake grilles simply because the play a huge part in brand image. Though this Mercedes is a bad example because it just looks **** compared to the sculpted grille design of its brothers and sisters.
Similarly fake air vents are used to give blank areas of a design a bit of interest. I draw the line at fake exhausts though. They look just cheap and pitiful.
