I like the way you think. Instead of Aerodynamics of Road Vehicles, try Viktor Schauberger:

The air curtains and your decklid mod are external ducts. The trick is short and fat to move a lot of air with least skin friction. The first example that caught my eye was this Ferrari:

All it does is bleed air away from the A-pillar. A favorite would be the GTI W12-650

Viktor's craft is in pure,incompressible flow,which an automobile would not achieve until 735-mph.We'd be into ballistics,which is entirely different physics.
