Porsche 911 Spotted Rocking A Giant Rear Wing

Spy Shots / Comments

And it will be available to order.

We recently spotted Porsche testing a red prototype of the current 992 generation 911 Carrera in the snow. This isn't a remarkably unusual occurrence even though the 992 is already on sale but this particular 911 is a bit unique. In the back, you'll likely notice a large rear spoiler. This is much different than the standard Carerra's pop-up rear spoiler and it isn't the same wing we spotted on the upcoming 911 GT3.

What you see here is actually part of what Porsche calls the Aerokit. It is currently shown in the configurator as a $6,910 option under the "Exterior" category for the 2020 911 Carrera.

Porsche spokesperson Frank Wiesmann told CarBuzz the Aerokit package includes "a SportDesign front fascia, SportDesign rear fascia, fixed rear wing and spoiler, and a third brake light integrated into the rear spoiler." He also told us "SportDesign side skirts are additionally available as an option."

Opting for the Aerokit enhances more than just the 911's visual appeal, it improves performance as well.

According to Wiesmann, the kit was "optimized in the wind tunnel to ensure perfect aerodynamics, [reduces] lift on the front and rear axle, and [creates] downforce even when the sunroof is in the open position." Of course, Porsche is also willing to admit the wing simply looks cool and "emphasizes the powerful appearance and uncompromisingly sportive look."

Wiesmann said "vehicles from the factory can be ordered with this option immediately," with deliveries starting in the first half of 2020. Porsche will also offer it for existing vehicles via its Aftersales program, Tequipment. The option is expected to be available for existing 911 models by summer 2020. We think the Aerokit will be a great option for customers who like the looks of a 911 GT3 but don't want to spend the additional cost or put up with the increased stiffness on the road.
