Which then can't explain how the same design ends up on 2 different cars :-/
That's exactly the thing an automaker can discover,once the prototype is constructed.Hucho has mentioned that features this small are hard to model in CFD and require wind tunnel verification,at full-scale.
They may have had the 'solid' taco fairing initially,only to find later, that they'd shot themselves in the foot,brake-cooling wise.Changing a small,thermo-formed piece of ABS plastic and it's tooling wouldn't be the sort of thing that would blow their budget.

blow around the radiator

There might be an igniter on the wheel-well or some other electronic device,which needs some airflow over its heat-sink.You don't want to overheat a battery either.
