Believe or not, this is based on a vette. Best looking vette I ever saw.

Teardrop Cars
CLASSIC CARS
Aerodynamically, the shape of a drop of water faces the least air resistance, so in the years running up to the Second World War, numerous ŠKODA vehicles strove to replicate this “teardrop” look.
https://www.skoda-storyboard.com/en/classic-cars/teardrop-cars/

Quote:
The 532 and 536 bus prototypes also featured aerodynamic rear sections. The triple-axle 532 with independent suspension on all wheels was particularly impressive. Its rear-mounted engine was separated from the 35-seater passenger compartment by a soundproofed partition and could be reached via a hatch. The wheels on both rear axles were skirted for improved aerodynamics. The upcoming war, however, halted the development of these prototypes.

AUTOCULT - GAZ - 16A HOVERCRAFT RUSSIA 1962
https://www.carmodel.com/autocult/atc06039/1-43/gaz/16a-hovercraft-russia-1962/136968



Quote:
Undoubtedly one of the weirdest protoypes was the GAZ 16A. Written out the abbreviation stood for ‘Gorkowsky Awtomobilny Sawod’ which loosely translated means ‘Automobile Plant Gorki’. Founded already in 1932 the company served to manufacture trucks, passenger cars and special vehicles like amphibian vehicles. As with beginning of the 1950s the East-West-conflict intesified GAZ got development jobs. In the beginning of the 1960s another vehicle class was added – air cushion vehicles or better known as hovercrafts. The engineers of GAZ had knowledge of the conceptual difficutlies of hovercrafts but still managed to design a harmonic car body for the new vehicle concept.
