Has anyone seen these vanes? Just curious

I wonder if this Boxster belongs to someone on the forum? Where did you find these?

from the ad
"ATTACH THESE SPEED FINS AND POSSIBLY LOWER THE COEFFICIENT OF DRAG AND EXPERIENCE THE PROBABILITY OF MORE HP AND BETTER GAS MILEAGE....

THESE ROCKET FINS ARE USED ON FERRARI'S'

ASIDE FROM MAKING YOU CAR LOOK MORE AGGRESSIVE... THE SPEED FINS ADDS MORE MUSCLE AND CLASS TO YOUR CARS LOOKS AT THE SAME TIME....

Simple. To lower the coefficient of drag and experience the probability of more HP.

(that almost got me pee'ing my undies, brightened up my day for sure....)

Oh, I'm not keen on them at all, just curious and sharing with the others. Someone obviously liked it enough to install them.
