2008 Pontiac G8 GT: I Never Noticed This Before

As I was driving home last night in the Pontiac G8 GT, the A/C was pumping out pretty strong. I even had the fan on the lowest setting. This is something that is common in American cars. We Americans sure like our A/C cranking.

When I got home and opened the door, I realized the driver-side air conditioning vent is actually on the door. Underneath, there is a vent in the dash that gets covered by the door vent when it is closed. You would think this double vent would cut down the amount of air that flows through but it doesn't.

I don't know why I never noticed this design before.

Can you think of any other cars that have this setup?

Here's how it looks when the door is closed.
