Default Active Front Louvers on the 992?

Looks to me like the vanes are fixed on the 992, like the 991.1. Or do they move, like the 991.2?

They are active, I remember seeing different spy shots early on where the louvers were closed in some pictures and then open in others.

Yes, C4S here. If I recall correctly, the GTS models do not have active louvers. However, I think that your turbo s has active front spoiler instead:-)

Yep, I thought this was discussed before. The GTS does not have them:-) Other 991.2 models do..

Somewhat related but does someone know where the screws or fasteners are located on the outer most louvers, Sport Design front bumper? I want to try and get my Zunsport grills to sit flush. on the inward side.

That's because the GTS front bumper doesn't have anything to close... lol The other models with a bunch of slats across the radiators do close.

Sport design bumper on carreras = no active louvres. You do get them with the regular front bumper on the 991.2 carreras.
