Good explanation guys, thanks.

In my mind anytime one squeezes and compresses air it takes energy, and that is not as efficient as simple attached air flow.

If both the front and before the rear wheel air inlets are for air curtains or even brake cooling then they are not simply styling exercises.

Looks cool, just not as cool as something with less manipulation to my eyes.

If I'm not seeing deadened air-pockets or vented flow-through air curtains on aircraft like sailplanes/gliders then it cannot be as efficient as possible in my mind.
