We just finished up our new blade style wing prototype. Our goal was to design a spoiler that flows with the rest of the car and looks like it is going 100 mph standing still. I think we have achieved that. Let me know what you think.

I'm sorry, but I'm not a fan of this spoiler.

IMO it just doesn't go with the lines of the car.

It would look better as a completely flat blade or angled to go with the seam of the rear fascia.

Almost all the various spoilers I've seen (factory and aftermarket) tend to look like "add-ons", and detract from the clean lines and styling of the base car, IMHO.

I like the optional Chevy "wing" spoiler, but not enough to get one.

I like the look but laid back like that it will actually create lift, exactly the opposite of that the rear spoiler is supposed to do. Sorry, I'm a function over form kind of guy.

Like my stock spoiler better.
IMO the stock spoiler looks better with
the lines of the car. Tend to think GM
knew what they were doing.

I completely disagree. Have you seen the rocker panels on the new Altantic and Pacific editions Corvettes? Looks like a designer started and then never finished.

This is all a matter of taste. The OEM rocker panels have a design effect and look built into them. After Market copies have personal likes or market sales looks built into them. Keep it GM Boys and it will go further.

Make them available to sell. Market reception (sales numbers) will tell you who likes it and who does not.

The reason the rocker panels look the way they do is so your leg doesn't clip it getting in and out.

To each his own, but not for me. Looks like it belongs on a Scion or Subaru.
