Yes, I know it's not the profile the tool has. I doubled the drop off curve to keep the tail short, and put the same profile on the bottom.

I was thinking of clear plexiglas covering the car's tail lights in the same angle as the boat tail, so the lights would show through. The lights at the tip of the tail need not be turn or brake lights, but just rearmost running lights and license plate lights, if the Prius' regular brake/stop/turn signal lights can be seen. Of course, access to the hatch is by sliding the boat tail out of the receiver far enough for the hatch to be opened.
