Driving with the wing up. No shame.

If I have it up, everything else goes up as well!

When I visit Miami, I find that many 991s have the spoiler up, even when parked. Must be a Miami thing, I guess! I leave mine on auto as I feel the lines of the car are gorgeous with it stowed. Then, as the aero and cooling needs warrant, the computer will take over and use the spoiler as it needs to. I do love driving with the sunroof open though and watching it extend even higher is really cool. Maybe I'm just selfish and don't drive with it up unless "I" can see it! :-)

I keep mine in auto. Not really a fan of how it looks deployed, prefer it down.

Prefer the look of the car with it down, but it’s there for a reason.

I do something even more egregious with my spoiler. If there is a pretty girl behind me at a stoplight, I put it up and down twice in quick succession. Sometimes I get a thumbs up....sometimes a mouth drop or smile. LOL
Cant believe it took until post 13 for someone to point out it is a spoiler. Thanks.

+1000

Maybe the 991.2 looks a tad better ? On the 991.1 I think it looks like somebody forgot to close an internal panel, the millenium falcon flying with its door open... The 992 will be even worse with the wing eating into the fenders.
I am seriously considering a fixed duck. I don;t like how mine looks when up, at all...

It is blasphemy leaving it up there when parked! I can see when the car is moving to deploy the spoiler but not otherwise. What is next - GT3 touring guys leaving the spoiler up lol. That is why I get winged GT3's or cars with aerokits.

Born and raised on base and a USAF fighter pilot. I know a thing or two about aeronautics. It's a retractable wing thingamajig.

Does the spoiler raise higher if the sunroof is open? Why?

Really? You should advise Porsche. They think it is spoiler and save what they call wings for the Sport Design option, the Turbo and GT models.
