CYBRTRK vs Airfoil, from YouTuber "Solving the Money Problem"
It's just about as aerodynamic as a vehicle can get, at least in this perspective.

Twitter User JustinWMartin14 plugged the CYBRTRK into an aerodynamic simulator.
Right at the top of the triangle is the most disruptive point. He said the wheels are almost completely taken out of the aerodynamic equation, and had to triple check his work because it didn't seem to add up

If they put some folding flaps at the rear ( like on Class8 trailers behind the Tesla Semi) the turbulent (blue) arrea would be even less.

vehicles like fighter jets

Speaking about Tesla’s inspirations for the Cybertruck, Franz noted that the electric car maker looked to vehicles like fighter jets as a basis for the all-electric pickup truck. This statement definitely appears to ring true, as the steel pickup, especially when it is carrying Tesla’s all-electric ATV on its bed, resembles the profile of the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk, a stealth fighter plane that was in service from October 1983 to April 2008.
