Problem there is that no one would build them because pretty much no one would buy them except for a few of us extremist ecomodders, and since most of us all drive different cars, they might sell 2 or 3 of each kind, and in order to produce any kind of quality and improvement in aerodynamics they would have to spend hours in the wind tunnel. That is, unless they charged $100,000 or something ridiculous for each unit.
