Anyone know why the convertible has a full air dam under the splitter and the coupe appears to only have the dam on the left and right sides only.

Secondly the convertible has a air deflector in the cross frame in the rear that the coupes don't have. Anyone know what it's purpose?

Thanks.

I was told that they are there to relieve pressure inside the top at high speeds. I've noticed that my top doesn't balloon at all at higher speeds like the last C series..

The base coupe has full width air dam (3 piece) with the Z-51 coupe having a two piece air dam. Perhaps the deflector in the back on the vert. is to direct air flow to the tranny radiator?

I thought the front air dam configuration was dependent on Z51 or not, not coupe vs convertible.
