I discovered that part 93589:

93589

Was used in the Creator set Extreme Engines (31072):

31072-1 Extreme Engines

This element strikes me as the sort of part-out-of-other-parts that was created to serve a single purpose: the front end on specific race cars. For most cases, it seems like the 4x1 slope curved can do the job quite well minus the slight curve at the front:

Slope Curved 4x1

The element only gets used in the main model. What are some other uses for this part? Why was it created?

This part was introduced for licensed polybags in the Racers Ferrarri line (30195 and 30190):

30195

30190

It has been used that way a few other times since then, but it has also been used a few other ways in released sets.

It was used in 95012-1 BARC Speeder with Sidecar to round out the back end of the CIS speeder nicely:

75012

And identically in 75017-1 Duel on Geonosis:

75017

The part was also used to create a nice nose for a dragon in 70736-1 Attack of the Morro Dragon:

70736

It has also been used in a couple different City sets to round off aircraft components such as the engines on 4209-1 Fire Plane:

4209-1

And the top of the Helicopter in 60010 Fire Helicopter:

60010-2

This part has only appeared in about a dozen sets in six different colors. It's fun to have another shape to play with in models, and this part adds some unique possibilities to possible builds.
