Dumb Question?

Does the spoiler on our cars actually improve the aerodynamics of it?

Having just installed one earlier this week, I feel intimately familiar with it. It is flat with an ever so slight upturn on the trailing edge. I would say a definite NO.

This design has seemed to hold steady throughout the 2009s. The CS and GT500 spoilers available on the 2010-2014 have a distinct angle that should prove to be of some help in the 80mph and up range. I don't know if any tests have ever been made but it seems that I once read that number somewhere.

There's some functional hoods. Like heat extractors and ram air types
Also functional side scoops but I'm not a fan of those.

As for the spoiler, no they aren't functional, there are some though but the ones we usually see. For example, gt500, gt/cs wing nope, all for the looks.
