NOT ONE of these cars is aerodynamic, even passively. Oh yes, there is such a thing as active aerodynamics, too, squirt that jet of air forward! Why these simpletons fail, fail, fail, and fail to create aerodynamic automobiles is why we import oil instead of exporting it. Enclose those wheel wells, boys! Ladies, get a boat tail on those rolling things, slick up the body and its underside as well. Just bend the metal better and viola!
The new beetle is baaaad, love the beefier, lower, hotter profile and stance. The new People Wagon is here and I want it!
