There is still the differential between the speed of the car and the wind. You would not be generating wind only by moving the car in still air. However, getting maximum wind speed would mean driving into the wind, which is not feasible.
Solar panels on the car roof and hood seem most practical for on the go energy production, as most roads are open to the sky.
