See the Toyota Will Vi:

And this concept from Teijin:

These are 'closed' shapes so I wonder what the aero difference would be with a rear panel on yours?
Yea, I agree. There is something to the overall shape. It is a semi-kammback. Dr. Wunibald Kamm, aerodynamicist created the "Kamm" design in the 1930s. You should google it.

Yes, I do think a closed shape would be better. I'm working on this!
