Why does the Solstice car have those 2 lumps on the back of the car, one behind the driver's seat and one behind the passenger's seat? Is there a purpose for them?

In addition to help with aerodynamics, it is also a styling reminiscent of much older Formula One and other open-wheel race cars. Some older sports cars had the style as well.
If you look around at the US auto stylings, they are trying to reinvent the brands a bit by bringing back the old - GM cars are well known for that but the styles of the 60s has made appearances in Fords and Dodge vehicles as well.
I can only guess that GM decided to bring back the stylings of Formula One although they aren't well known for race cars of that era in Europe.
