More stylistic flailing about. These are better, but nothing’s caused an “ahah” moment so the trials continue. The first couple shots; I don’t like the upper rear outside corner – it’s too sharp – but I bet it’s great aerodynamically. The second gets rid of the sharp corner but doesn’t look all that much better and drag’s likely higher. The last picture is a suggestion that reader Mikko Hietanen sent in. It’s pretty good, but because he didn’t know the car dimensions, was able to make it look very tidy in an area where the framework extends further back. I kind of like the big rectangular opening, very bold, and will look fine once screen is installed. A couple steps closer – perhaps.
