Ground hugging aerodynamics?!!

"Attention, anyone who left their car in the hot sun, your car is...melting!"

Ironically, the concept might have been done by one of MY favorite contemporary designers, Jason Castriota. Automotive builder/supplier, Porsche/ Fisker builder & Finnish company, Valmet Automotive, created this electric vehicle concept to show their EV tech. People still scratching their heads, could be a hovercraft?

It's strange, but I like it (as a design exercise).

It's no hovercraft, but if the shell is light enough, I can turn it into one for you.

It would certainly need active suspension to have a chance on real streets and roadways.
