      I agree that it's the defroster vent.

            If that's a diffuser, it's dragging on the ground. And besides, it extends beyond the width of the car, easily visible to the right. It's a reflection, nothing more.

                Nope I’d say that’s the F-150’s vents

                  Rear diffuser’s generate downforce without much drag. Race car underbody’s are complex engineering. The need to find the point of balance in the aero loading is critical.

                    Is it crazy Im not a fan of rear diffusers like that either...

                    looks like a rake to me...real world driving and Id be replacing broken rear diffusers like crazy....

                    add that to the list of tumor looking rear spoilers....hehehe..

                    sorry I dont mean to be negative...

                        That is no difuser. That's the air vent from the F-150

                          Yes, it is. Won’t be my first mistake this week, nor my last.
