Hey jrabb, I love the look of the wide-body 914s. Did it look like this?

I'm not digging the spoiler too much, but i'm sure it has a function.

IMO, spoilers do nothing.

They don't do much if you won't be going around bends at 90 mph. For race cars that do that, it provides the extra downforce needed to keep the car from sliding. Other than that, all it does is make your car look different.

Which isn't neccesarily a bad thing.

Man that thing look like what i had, and yes that fin is needed, it gives you down force for stability, the one I had had a 6 banger, it would top out at 170mph in the staright-a-ways.
