Seems to look like the air knows what to do and is not tumbling away in a disruptive manner.

EDIT-1: The wheels do not seem to be turning in the wind tunnel photos, therefore the draw of the engine fan does not seem to be entering the equation. Making the air flow even more flattering for this design, or less so?

The messy air and pressure discharge under the car's engine bay would undo any gains topside though the rear engine intake?
