The gloves and glasses suggest that it's some kind of driver's car. I looked at the Starion interiors from the era and they do not match.

Does it have a grate / grille in the front of it (based on the vent behind it?)
No, but I'm in the camp that thinks the painting is an interpretation or amalgamation of Japanese design from that era. The SX was the closest thing I can find from the two button latch, to the way the door angles up to the face of the dash, and the way the center stack juts away from it. The climate control sliders in the real photo are replaced with buttons in the painting. I know that was an upgrade option from Honda back then, but I don't know if anyone else offered that.

Did anyone else besides VW ever do a cooled glove compartment? Maybe that's what that vent is for?

The lower part of the center console that juts forward with rounded corners is also oddly specific and familiar. It's driving me a little nuts, but I can't remember where I might have seen that from.
