You forgot that the duck spoiler would this be on the car.I'd love to see that GT4 spoiler gone, but question is at what point does the car become unstable without some sort of spoiler. The standard Cayman spoiler deploys at 75 mph. Remember the first generation Audi TT that had no rear spoiler and became aerodynamically unstable at speeds above 90 mph or so. There were accidents until Audi stuck on the little duck tail spoiler.
I removed the brake light handle on my 993, as it was ugly and had no function with respect to the performance of the car. had to repaint the decklid, so you can do anything you want to. Being a German car and using logic, I would wonder why you would want a GT4 without the wing? Seems like that is what the GTS is for.seems like a lot of us would prefer the car without it..and there has been a suggestion that it might be doable in a way that it isn't on the GT3, anyone aware of a definitive answer on this?
My guess is that it's easier to take the wing off a GT4 than to stuff a 3.8 into a GTS... :taunt:This does seem a little sacrilegious or something... It gives me a sad someone would buy a GT4 (or a GT3 for that matter...) and remove the wing. OK sure, the spoiler and the rest of the aero kit is a bit flashy, but so what? That's what this car was designed for, a track toy with road-going capability. All of the aero is functional and serves a purpose... That would be like removing the wing on a P1 or a Veyron... If you want the more subdued version, get the GTS and always keep the spoiler down.
I'm with the OP... If going to daily drive the car I'd take it off and the dealer was happy to assist. Together with a second set of wheels with MPSS. On occasional track days, reinstall the wing, put the MPSC2 back on perhaps with some track pads and all set to go. When daily driving I don't expect to be anywhere near speeds where the wing would matter and I value the lack of attention besides the aesthetic sans big wing.seems like a lot of us would prefer the car without it..and there has been a suggestion that it might be doable in a way that it isn't on the GT3, anyone aware of a definitive answer on this?
This ^^^^^.The downforce produced by the wing is balanced by exactly the same downforce from the front aero. In fact if you adjust the wing to 7 degrees, they provide removable panels under the front of the car to balance the aero again.
Removing the wing altogether would mean you are running way more downforce on the front axle than the rear! We can debate at exactly what speed that screws up the handling of the car, but really?
Why not just buy the GTS?? Then you can actually keep the handling balance that you paid Porsche's engineers to create.
