What I see is a static representation of instantiations of a form that could easily morph from one to the next using a slide control.

And the flow body is compromised, as aerohead points out, by the refractive index of glass. I don't know about safety glass but plate glass is 1.52, and IIRC lower is better. Ice for instance is 1.31, but not a suitable material for a windshield. Transparent aluminum is 1.78.

I still think the Beetle's small, flat windshield is a good compromise.
