Porsche wants to prove that its wild rear wings have a real purpose and aren’t just for show.
As part of its Top 5 series, the German automaker has released a video showcasing the wildest spoilers and rear wings it has ever created. And while the aftermarket has made large spoilers seem silly, they do play an integral part in aerodynamics. To prove Porsche’s spoilers are more function than form, the automaker enlisted the help of Norbert Singer, former race director, to explain their benefits.
Each vehicle’s spoiler is also showcased in one of the world’s most powerful wind tunnels, illustrating just how much downforce is being produced.
Like the last Porsche video that highlighted the five best sounds according to Porsche, this video involves modern, classic and race Porsches. There’s even a car or two that may surprise you.
