How you'd get in and out of that?
Imagine dating a girl who wears a tight skirt and you show up with this. Trouble...

Trouble would be having one's wife find out about the girl with the short skirt.

I hesitate to say a car will be more aero backwards as it often isn't the case and just a cliche, but this orange/yellow one may qualify.

It is cool looking though.

People with a girlfriend and/or wife? Colani actually made three of those:

Numba 3 has door cut-lines and an interior. The door appears to double as a front fender skirt. Minus headlight and grille, plus three-bladed wiper.

Extensive wind-tunnel tests
Early on in the development of the aerodynamics for the new 911 RSR, computer simulations CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) were carried out. These trials offered the chance to evaluate certain concepts and components without having to actually build a model. Afterwards, the concepts under consideration were tested in the model wind tunnel, in real airflow.

These were production vehicles in 2000? Reminds me of the Ford Indigo:



They both have open wheels with cycle fenders painted black.

Ecomodder logo on the back door...! I guess someone should know.
That thread has gone down the Photobucket drain.

I believe there is a browser or browser extension that tunnels through that. Not happening in this browser and OS.

It might be worth someone who can going through and re-saving the best parts.
