Is there a Snopes for aerodynamics?

Something cautions me from accepting this a face value.
Snopes is garbage. What you want is a 4chan for aerodynamics.

aerohead — That was my thought, too. The other two contenders differ only in the greebling on the fastback. I wonder how close they would be to each other.

SuperTruck Making Leaps in Fuel Efficiency
February 19, 2014

2018
Truck Makers May Test Radically Different Aero Cab Designs With SuperTruck II
https://www.ttnews.com/articles/truc...-supertruck-ii

Quote:
The primary goal of SuperTruck II is to show a 100% freight-efficiency improvement in a tractor-trailer combination by either doubling the amount of freight that can be hauled with the same amount of fuel, or cutting fuel use 50%, in a representative customer drive cycle over a 2009 baseline, according to DOE.
SuperTruck Program Scores Big, Heads into Second 5-Year Phase
October 31, 2016
https://www.trucks.com/2016/10/31/su...-5-year-phase/

Quote:
Dubbed SuperTruck II, the five-year, $160-million program will see the same four teams of truck, engine and trailer builders from SuperTruck 1 attempt to move far beyond the successes they’ve already racked up. The teams spent $258 million – a combination of federal funding and their own money – on the first program.

Mid-1930s police car doesn't follow the default template:

Those machine guns remind me of a Dalek.

edit: Whelp, there's your problem:

Four wheel steering requires voice coordination. That 8-liter four mounted that high up?
