Couldn't you do the same with the 172 Skyhawk? If I'm not mistaken, the older 172s built back in the 175 era are almost identical firewall aft, and include the same fastback fuselage. Some 172 models share the same type certificate with the 175 due to the similarities.

If Vans were to copy a Cessna model, I would prefer they copy the 182 due to the larger cabin. Two big guys rub shoulders in a 172, which gets old on the long slow flights in that airplane. If Vans caters to the low and slow crowd, I hope they make the RV-15 roomy to make the long flights more comfortable.

Default 175/ 172.

The 1958/ 1959 C175 has a stepped out, on the bottom, firewall, The 172 firewall is flat . That is not important in my argument.

Van’s can’t just copy Cessna, can they? Or maybe,, they can? Cub Crafters makes Carbon Cubs & Top Cubs. Looks real similar to a Piper Super Cub to me.

I think the square tail 100 series Cessna are the best looking.
Hope Van’s copies the Cessna 175.
Incorporates my Ideas in the RV15 design.
And it can Cruse 130 knots,,,, or more!
