That's the way it was designed - the GTA was designed in a wind-tunnel, 
I believe.

It's mainly the nose that looks considerably different and more slippery

(early one in foreground)

The GTA's were all parked with their rear wheels up a small bank which 
is why they look so much lower than the DeLoreans! In reality, they ride 
at a very similar height.

4th and 5th ratios are as follows

DeLorean/NA GTA:    1.04    0.82
GTA Turbo:    0.96    0.76

Hope this answers your question
