I believe so. There was discussion hereabouts on the slotted fins for crosswinds, like the BAT cars.

Those are both new ones on me! The Martin is very interesting.

Aero as good as a Prius in 1976 (0.268). I'm curious about the combined rear fender skirt/wing on the back. I'd been thinking about something similar.

Jalopnik also talks about the “Project: Secret!” in the Porsche Museum, doesn't show as many pictures but does say the show, which opened on the 17th, has 14 cars total.

Thanks for the heads up.
