Your free to say whatever you want, but it's not debate material. Wow us with some peer-reviewed quanta!

Not me! And it will never happen.

This type of car is not going for low drag - they need a fair bit of downforce. So, the diffuser angle is not good for minimum drag.

MacLaren actively modulates the downforce for just that reason.

I think the diffuser could be structured like an M-hull running in reverse.

Pich Automotive's team also includes former BMW, Porsche, and Tesla executives. ... Figuring out which electric vehicle startup will survive or not is a lottery these days, ... Piech.
As a Tesla and VW fan I find this interesting. Ex-VW and Tesla executives' new startup has a design almost as good as the Renovo/Cobra Coupe. And a five-minute 80% charge rate.

I like the look of the front of that car, it is the first new car that looks happy. I do wonder though if the 80% in 5 minutes is from 0% or 20%, and where that would be practical to do without specialised grid connections. Rough calculations: 0.2kWh/km and 500km range gives 100kWh. They must be charging at about 1MW to get a 5 minute charge. That is like a small power station's worth of power.

Could be a CyberCityHawk if it was in 304 stainless steel. It's got the chamfered front corners and longitudinal razor edges.
