Cayman R Spoiler

I've looked at the photos but can't tell if the Cayman R has the "normal" automatic spoiler in conjunction with the fixed wing or not. Does anyone know? Also is the Cayman fixed spoiler available for purchase anywhere?

As far as I can tell, the Cayman R spoiler is the same as the cayman aerokit spoiler. The spoiler is mounted to the rear hatch in front of the movable spoiler. Just like in previous versions of the boxster, the wing is de-activated when the aerokit wing is mounted. Call you fav porsche dealer and ask them about purchasing the cayman aerokit wing. It will probably be around 600 or so, I would guess.

Thanks JD. I'll check it out and see what they have. My goal has been to try to see some spoilers on vehicles that I like the look of before buying. This one looks pretty good. Some are too large for the 986. Some are too small to mess with (for me). I'm looking for the right size, shape and then possibly trim the car in metallic gold or something contrasting the Rainforest Green Metallic paint. It's difficult. When I find a wing/spoiler that a vendor has, that might look good, the vendor's don't have photos from all angles to show how it looks.

To me that's poor advertising. I want to see it from the front, rear and sides for a fair on line evaluation. So far, I'm not getting many posts on my photo requests for wings/spoilers. No hurry though.

I like this one on ebay. Looks like a copy of the factory Porsche aero kit.

The 2012 Cayman R my wife and I drove at the Sun Valley Porsche Invitational was stationary. I asked the Porsche factory rep if it also has the automatic up/down spoiler. The answer is NO. Only the stationary spoiler.

BTW: It is said the stationary spoiler on the Cayman R produced more down force than the automatic spoiler.

They had a Cayman R on Motorweek this morning and I wondered why I never saw the spoiler deploy. Now I know.

BTW, this Cayman R was at the Charlotte Cars & Coffee earlier this month. Nice looking machine.
