Yeah, no worries about that happening.

Aero add-ons available aftermarket from the builder? Likely not enough demand for that either.

In this image the rear wheel skirt and the spoiler shape, which is counter-intuitive, are easier to see:

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

It is definitely easier to see that the rear spoiler in the top view is a poor photoshop effort!

Also, what's up with the reflection of the front wheel in the top view? It looks like at first they were going with moon eye type discs, then switched to the fancy air blenders, but forgot to change the reflection.
