A book that is 33 years old is not 'contemporary aerodynamic literature'.

If the shape of the template is the best for drag, I'd have expected many references to it in current aero tech literature. I know of no such references.

That says to me that you are over-simplifying your analysis, as it applies to road cars.

To a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
