At least someone is guessing.
No I think artists (with basic engineering knowledge) drew up a bunch of concept sketches, Elon picked this one. Then they started modeling it sticking to the sketch and fine tuned a few things aero wise but the focus was to produce the radical concept drawing in real life. I think they literally would have made a brick if that was the drawing that inspired Musk.
