I was visiting OPC Swindon today to test drive a (um er) Macan 2.0 petrol with my better half...anyway well schooled by me she went to look at a 993 C4 for sale as a Classic Porsche. What caught her eye was the spoiler and she suggested I consider buying one to enhance my standard 1994 C2. Does anyone know which spoiler this is?
https://www.dicklovett.co.uk/porsche/used-cars/7216770-porsche-911-993-carrera-4/

I was underwhelmed by the Macan by the way. Bigger than I expected, poor visibility and didn’t feel like a Porsche. I’ve only ever driven 911s so I’m probably spoilt

I think that is an RS spoiler

https://www.design911.co.uk/fu/prod2499/Rear-Spoiler-Aerofoil-RS-Porsche-993-RS-1994-97/

I'm afraid I have to disagree with your Wife to say that won't enhance your car.......

A spoiler is aptly named IMHO, as I think they do exactly that to the 993's lines

But I know there are many fans of spoilers just not my cup of tea, well maybe a Ducktail on a 70's RS is just about acceptable

Here's a link to a previous discussion re: 993s with a ducktail:

They look good from some angles, a little award from others...

Like your wife I am quite tempted by the RS spoiler. I would need to go side sills and front aero wings aswell! I love the standard car but when you see one sitting a bit lower with rs kit I think it looks pretty damn sweet.
Lots of early cars given the rs look and I think it's time we started the trend for the 993!

I was contemplating a ducktail until I had an opportunity to get the “small spoiler/touring” RS kit and replica wheels for a relative bargain. Took me a while to source the side sills though. Think it may be my favourite 993 variant in terms of looks, but I am biased.

Crikey, is that still there? I saw it back in May. It's in nice condition but a lot of money, especially for an iffy colour.

Not a fan of the 'RS look' personally, but as it's not my car I guess I don't need to be. Bit of a half-way house with the twists.

I agree the car above is an iffy colour. I saw it at the NEC classic show last year and it still looks iffy when seen in the flesh. Jitstar I think your car looks ACE Thumb

I must admit I’m a fan of the RS kit look too. That’s the M002 Comfort spec rather than the bigger club sport one.

Not cheap at all to do though and part of me keeps refusing to justify that kind of money when the car already looks so damn beautiful!

911livin and colt have done the same to theirs re M002 look I think.

Good idea to fit uprated struts as the RS tail is heavier than std. The CS one even more so

RS wannabe's done to death... Get a classic ducktail and stand out from the crowd. Wink

Is that true - I'd never have believed that. Surely when you remove the motor, gears and gubbins from the standard spoiler, the fixed RS one can't be much heavier?

I was surprised too. When I did the swap the original struts just didn't hold. Possibly the longer length accounts for it. Archimedes principal Class 2 levers.

......and if you get a complete engine lid along with your spoiler, you can keep swapping them around

Weird - mine are fine. (touch wood they stay that way...)

Being a curious (/skeptical b'tard) I just asked Gert at Carnewal who sold me mine. He reckons the genuine RS is lighter, which is what I'd bet. (With no actual facts behind me, I admit).

My car came with Areokit II, so already had the stronger arms.
When I fitted a standard lid, I needed to disconnect one of the gas arms - or it would have gone straight through the rear window! It was like a catapult....

Now I’ve got the RS lid on, I’ve got them both connected again, though I do still feel the need to hold the lid as I release the pull cord.

I agree with Endoman though. I still have the original complete lid, and there isn’t a great deal in weight difference - the RS lid being only slightly heavier.

Got the spoiler and deck lid all in one piece - so I assume it came with the appropriate struts, as it’s held up fine. Feels very light for a decent size spoiler mind.

Out of interest, has anyone had any experience of a 993 with a ducktail spoiler? Is it a terrible idea as an alternative to an RS rep?

Do you mean a proper ducktail like this? ....... Sundeep runs one on his 993.
