CD players are going the way of the ashtray, roll-down windows and whitewall tires. Chevrolet is the latest to join the ranks of automakers like Ford who have ditched physical media players in favor of music streamed through onboard systems and auxillary music devices like smartphones and iPods.

Weighing in at about five pounds, manufacturers are looking for any way they can to slim down autos' bodies in favor of maximum fuel efficiency.
