Radiusing the aft edge of wheel well arches allows air exiting the wheel well to more easily stay attached to/reattach to the side of the body.

While modifying the metalwork itself would be difficult, the mod could also be accomplished by adding & shaping material on the inside of the arch.

Examples of this design approach can be seen on the first generation Honda Insight, GM EV1 and Corvette, VW 1L concept, and Solectria Sunrise prototype EV (pictured).
