That's weird, but actually looks somewhat cool.

The pod would have to replace the missing hatch structurally. There appears to be daylight between it and the roof forward of the hatch. And possibly four legs at the A- and B-pillars.

It needs a sunroof opening with an inflated gasket, and a clamshell boat tail to rob back some aero advantage — and make a porch.

Oh this is fun... I've got a few.

This thing.

And my favorite... Not only is it brick shaped, but it's also convertible and has a huge hole in the front. At least it has the wheels partially covered.
