Just look at the wheel gap above that wheel in the picture I posted ! ( post # 2 )
One would think that the air would be turbulent there.
And keep in mind the Cd was the same with and without that air deflector ( spat ) they have taped on there. You would think the air would smack right into that tire and go turbulent !
No boat-tailing behind that tire either.
Stock door handles too ( non flush )

Perhaps Gary Eaker is just a brilliant guy that knows how to tune a car to perfection.
He did after all work on the aerodynamics of the EV-1.
