Yeah, the really blunt front and more upright windscreen has nothing to do with it....

You could remove the rear windows (the back 3), that would possibly help but there would be more turbulence (= drag and probably lift). Extending a flat wing at the back would help.

Im sure it does, the front/windshield is more vertical, but not that much more upright. But its not the only thing. I was simply trying to highlight one area that in my opinion does make a difference that is often overlooked. The front of the car does have a larger silhouette aswell. And there is a heavier body, different tyre diameters and many other subtle differences that will all add up.

Removing the windows would probably not help, and maybe even hinder. But a large flat wing and possibly even removing the rear bumper, or trying to soften the lower rear transition with a diffuser/ramp. Its not uncommon to see purpose buult drag cars with the smooth flat wing extensions hanging off the rear to try and minimise/smooth the rear edge.
