I've seen in-car 911 racing videos where the front fiberglass lid noticeably moves and flexes upward.

Ford Mustang aerodynamics engineer Ken Anderson uses a smoke wand to demonstrate the lines and curves of a 2015 Mustang inside a wind tunnel facility in Allen Park. The 2015 model is a quieter car with 3% less drag, translating into 1% better fuel efficiency. / Eric Seals/Detroit Free Press

Slippery Peugeot 208 Hybrid concept - GreenMotor.co.uk

Quote:
Most noticeably, the 208 Hybrid FE has gained a new hatch and rear lamps, substantially extending the car’s silhouette at the rear and contributing to a very slippery drag co-efficient below 0.25 – or about 25% better than the standard 208, which boasts a quite competitive Cd figure of 0.29. Other aerodynamic measures include a rear axle narrowed by 40mm, a flat underbody, hidden door handles and rear-view cameras in place of door mirrors. The tyres are also unusually tall and narrow, a trick borrowed from the BMW i3 electric car.

Quote:
According to Donald Runkle, then Advanced Engineering Staff vice president, “The wind tunnel told us to do a rear-drive, rear-engine car. And then it said to package the powertrain to enable a five-inch taper from front to back.

Mercedes-Benz recently opened its new aeroacoustic wind tunnel at the development center of the company in Sindelfingen, the official website of Mercedes-Benz revealed. The wind tunnel is the latest addition to the Mercedes-Benz Technology Centre where the company has invested over €230 million. The center also features a climate tunnel and driving simulator center. The company is currently working on a technology center for vehicle safety in the same location.

Quote:
The boys placed the cars in a pool of water. Dye was added to the water and photos were taken of the dye flowing around the toy cars. "Air and water have the same flow characteristics, but by using water we can slow down time and see the flow more clearly," explained Long. With these photos, the boys could measure the drag of each car. The orange liquid behind the car illustrates the wake, which can be used to determine the car's drag. The green lines across illustrate air moving across the car.
