I think we all recognize that the dimples on this car are a styling exercise or marketing exercise and not an aerodynamic engineering exercise.
NOTE: Attachment below is intended to illustrate that the roof does NOT need dimples to have attached flow, but the rear hindquarter may benefit from added dimples.
Agreed. Your attachment would be an improvement. It would seem to be a strategy that accommodates cross-wind situations.
