Jap crap
Not liking the jdm styling on some of those porsches. I dunno it just doesn't work.
I like TE37 wheels and i like porsches but i don't like te37s on porsches. Work that out. :?

I like them. It reminds me of people putting BBS wheels on their HSV/FPVs.

Scooter power!!
@Quadrax: agree. Same with Watanabe rims.

As for the big spoiler, well they are at the track. And they look removable/changeable to boot.

Didn't the 993 GT2 racer have that huge spoiler?

I'm no expert, but every car seems to have the same spoiler so yes, they could very well be stock.
Quick google search seems to suggest that the type on these cars were on Evo and race versions, but there is a smaller version without that raised centre piece.

I took the OP to be critical of the massive spoilers (I was probably mistaken), but if you're at the track there's no problem with a little wing. :)

I?m no expert either, but I?ve seen that same exact spoiler on several porsches here in germany, so it?s safe to say that it?s not some extravagant japanese thing.

Most of those cars actually look remarkably good considering the stuff that japanese people usually like doing to their sportscars.

I'm pretty sure that the street version had the large, body colored spoiler only. Every picture I bring up of actual race versions show has that extra black one bolted on,
