I'd like something like this, but more Porsche simple and less singer gurney flap...

Aka, looks oem, but less bulky than the actual oem, which always looked too chunky and ill fitting.

Thanks for the posts guys. Well, it looks like we have a few months to get a design down, but I am thinking about moving forward with the project with my connection. Basically, I want a very similar side profile as the white singer above. I won't compromise on that and will stay stock if we can't get the new trunk to do the following:

• It must have perfect OEM fitment, no different than the stock steel trunk
• No raised components aside from the tail itself from the side profile
• Use the SC grille insert
• Be strong, light and have a quality finish (ready to paint or painted - they offer both)

If we can't have all of the above, I will walk away, but I feel confident my guy can get it done. Here are a few samples of his work on the M3.

Mr. Wolfe
Are you planning to have it made from carbon fiber?

I'm very interested in running a naked CF rear decklid.

If there’s enough interest, this could become a group buy situation if it could help with production costs.

Not to dissuade or hijack this thread, but I like the ducktail on the Porsche 997 Sport Classic... it’s a little smaller than the standard RS ducktail and it looks more organic, in my opinion. It also looks like the ducktail rises up from the lid a little distance inboard from the lid’s edge.

Yes, I am sure CF would be an option.

That's exactly the case. We will probably need a minimum order to get this rolling.

I like that ducktail, though I do prefer the Singer's edginess a little more. I wouldn't mind softening the styling some on the Singer version, but a little less than the Sport Classic.

Thanks Jeff, that is one badass car. I just reached out to my contact last week to see if he was still interested in this project. He said absolutely and will be starting spring 2019.

If you're still planing a group buy, I'm interested once you know a price.

I will most certainly create a thread when the time comes and also link to it from this thread.
