Rear Spoiler
The rear spoiler improves driving stability, especially at higher speeds.



Risk of accident, resulting in serious personal injury or death.

If the spoiler cannot be extended, driving stability will be adversely affected by increased rear axle lift, which could lead to loss of control.

  • Adapt your driving style and speed to the changed driving conditions.
  • Have the fault remedied at an authorized Porsche dealer.

Risk of injury during manual retraction or extension of the spoiler with the vehicle stationary.

  • Make sure that no persons or objects are within the range of movement of the rear spoiler.

Risk of damage from pushing the vehicle by the rear spoiler.

  • Do not push the vehicle at the rear spoiler.

Automatic control (automatic mode)
The rear spoiler extends at approx. 75 mph (120 km/h) and retracts again at approx. 50 mph (80 km/h).

If the automatic control fails, the warning light lights up.

Warning Light

The warning light in the on-board computer lights up when the rear spoiler does not extend over 75 mph (120 km/h) or its end position is not reached.

Manual control (manual mode)
When the ignition is on, the rear spoiler can be extended and retracted manually using the button in the center console.

Note
When the rear spoiler is extended manually, the automatic control does not operate and the rear spoiler must be manually retracted.
