It gives you more useful internal volume, kills separation, kills lift,to make a 'neutral' lift body.
Drag coefficient is dependent upon the Vergungungsverhaltnisse (the ratio of the length of the aft-body,divided by the body height (not the overall height of the car), presented as a ratio. The lowest drag is achieved at V = 5:1.
(My bold in the above quote.) You are spreading lies again. As anyone who doesn't subscribe to the strange theories of 'Aerohead' would immediately realise, the shape you nominate has a lot of lift. The Porsche Taycan is just the latest example - but a good one because we have data for it.

Note for people keeping track, 'Aerohead' is later in the quote again spreading misleading rules of thumb.

You sir, have impugned my dignity and honor in public, and I challenge you to a duel!
And I get to choose weapons.
And I choose fluid mechanics rather than pistols.

On the signal, take 8-paces, turn an fire, with the best science at your disposal, and we'll let the chips fall as they may.
