  • Spoiler or No Spoiler - Side by Side Comparison Pics

    Which do you prefer? Spoiler or No Spoiler? Here are some side by side comparison photos I took this morning at Corvettes at Carlisle.

    Personally, I prefer the no spoiler look but I recognize the added downforce benefit that it provides to a Z51 Performance enhanced auto. It's somewhat of a Catch-22.

      No spoiler for me in my 2lt "base" Blade Silver. My browser is having trouble keeping up with you jag. Keep going!

        No spoiler! Put one on each of my C7s as they looked perfect, but the lines of the C8 look great without one.

          I’d like a spoiler.......but not that one....
          Although, I think that spoiler in black on the colored cars looks better....

            Very much a personal taste issue. I prefer the clean look with no spoiler, but understand those who like it. Who, in all honesty, needs it unless you track it?

              If they made an adjustable wing that would go completely flat I would probably pay an extra $4,000 for it even if it added extra weight.

              Zora are you listening?

                Can you do a comparison between the bright wheels and the black wheels? I still can’t decide which ones to go with. I like them both.

                  The non spoiler car looks really long without the spoiler. The spoiler breaks up the long rear end IMO. Me likey the Z51 spoiler for sure. Just not in any of these colors though. Oh and a black spoiler on a red car. Or a body colored spoiler on a black car .....lol

                      The no spoiler looks cleaner and the body lines flow better without it, to my eye.

                        After seeing them in person today, even these photos don't really make the difference clear, IMHO. I think the spoiler looks OK in the photos, but really don't care for it in real life. Glad I don't really want a Z51.

                          While I think it looks better without, and would look great with active aero, I am OK with the Z51 spoiler. It serves a function at a reasonable cost vs complexity of active aero, and will not be in the way like the high wing option. I don't lose my mind over it like some on the other forum.

                          Matter of what you like. For example, I like this better than C7 Z06 rear end.

                          Would still like to see a side by side C7 and C8 straight on the rear of the cars parked together to see height difference.

                              Jag, thank you so much for the photos!

                              I understand the need for spoiler for those who push the car to it's limit on track, but I really prefer the clean look with no spoiler. I think it looks more exotic without. I am now considering dropping the Z51. I wish there was a spoiler delete option.
