Here and I was trying to make the case that a Kamm-back converts a notchback into a squareback. Did GM call that a Kamm-back?

That model sure looks like an Ecomodder Metro.

Actually,it was done as part of a Masters Thesis over in Europe.They identified the model as of a GM suv.Nothing more specific.

It appears the consensus is curved taper on three sides and a flat angle against the ground plane.

They even provide a line at 1/3rd length to suggest a livable truncation.
