While I would NEVER do it, but a tail cone might actually do something for high speed highway cruising but it would look quite silly and be a pain in the butt to use the hatch etc.

A nose cone would not improve the aerodynamics of the Insight at subsonic speeds. The leading surface of an object should be roughly hemispherical to have a minimum of drag at subsonic speeds. A nose cone would probrably reduce drag at supersonic speeds.

How about a "tail" for the exterior mirrors? Transparent, and with the right (15 degree?) angle to avoid flow separation...

haa...I'm picturing the old "Superbird" here....

but in addition, like the "Superbird", we also need the high-top spoiler to keep the car on the road

But seriously....wouldn't the weight of a nose cone defeat the purpose of mpg gain? You are talking about a full frontal right?
