Never go that fast but it does feel like therès more downforce.
May have install a front lip now to compensate.

I would imagine even more downforce with some of the other higher tails out there.
I just liked the lower subtle look myself.

Stock exhaust. FabSpeed stainless tips.
Was getting really tired of scrubbing the carbon from the porous brushed oem tips. Now it just a wipe with a damp paper towel.

The tail is essentially a GT3 spoiler without the top wing.Same oem grills so no more water than a GT3 would experience.
The grilles were in actual Porsche bags with part numbers.
Phaff did what they said was a pre bake of the tail looking for air bubbles. Found none and said it was excellent quality.
Paint match was uncanny for an 8 year old car.

Id rather not quote price but Misha did just have them on sale so its best to contact them.
Dealing with them was a total joy!
Plus being in Canada I paid shipping , exchange , duties & taxes.
Lets just say around a grand with paint and Areo harness. Was worth every penny though.
Love the look and the comments never stop.

The ducktail looks really nice and may very well generate more downforce but if you can feel this at highway speeds, then you gentlemen have some very sensitives asses

Around my part of Texas the top LEGAL speed is 85 and yes I can feel the increased downforce and slight lightening of the front end

Looks great!

What wheels are those??

Also...be curious to see what you come up with for a front lip/spoiler! I've been looking my incoming 997.2 and not seeing much other than $1600 stuff.

I'm leaning towards a urethane spoiler as it'll flex rather than break like a fibreglass or carbon one.
I do scrape already no & then.
This one looks interesting.

The automotion one is up to year 2008 and my car is a 2009. I really like the one Sharkwerks is selling titled "werks1" but it is only in carbon fiber and that will not work.

the question as to what wheels on my car, they are Champion one piece forged model RS 98 shod with Mich, Super Sports

Thanks for the wheel info.

Ya, that's the issue I'm having when searching, there seem to be NO flexible CHEAP lips for the 997.2 like there are for the previous models. I mean $1100, $900, hell even $500 is ridiculous for a disposable part like that.

It's nice how it complements the 997 shape. It shows how nicely the 997 was designed, staying within the fundamental 911 shape, that a ducktail still looks mighty good on it!

Nothing close to OEM ductail, so much cleaner and better implemented.

Not usually a big fan of rear spoilers for street cars, but, wow, these look great!
