    Rear Spoiler only on Some Models?


    Panamera No Spoiler.jpg 
    I just saw a thread over on RennList which showed a Panamera without a movable rear airfoil.  What is the line up with and without the movable rear spoiler?

    Is that a rear view camera on the left side? Doesn't look too good.

    It looks like a 2-way radio antenna mount to me.  Testers like to talk to each other while driving in a group to places that don't have cell phone service.

            Thank you very much, that sounds absolutely plausible. I'm impressed (again) by the knowledge that's taken for granted here at Rennteam.

    All models have the pop-up spoiler but only the Turbo has an expandable spoiler. 

    Re: Rear Spoiler only on Some Models?

    Its right were neunelf poits at, but its finished in glossy black so it blends with the bottom of the rear window, but you can just make out the edges as the wing is not flush with the windshield and sits higher and the rear window reaches down only to were the rear windshield washer is attached.

    The rear end looks so much better without the Porsche and model logo.

     I can confirm what Mike said, mules have such (ugly) antenna mounts for two way radios. Why the rear? Because this is where the antenna "influences" aerodynamics/noise/etc. at a very low level. It really depends on the model.

    Yes, the retractable "wing" is still there, it just looks almost invisible, especially on dark colored cars. Pretty impressive but  as much as I try to like the "clean" rear part of the Panamera, I can't get used to it. Smiley

    Thanks everyone for clearing up my confusion.  I see exactly what is happening, now.
