Dutch tyre manufacturer Vredestein has teamed up with Porsche to develop a variable front spoiler for the Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S models. The front spoiler is a part of the Porsche Active Aerodynamics system and both companies have a series of patents on it reveals parent company Apollo Tyres. The spoiler is branded ‘Air Master by Vredestein.’
Commenting on this spoiler, Peter Snel, Chief, R&D (PV), Apollo Tyres Ltd, said “I am quite excited with this innovation by the team, especially because the team has gone beyond the usual tyre-related research. This also demonstrates Porsche's confidence on us for developing such an item.” He added, “The variable front spoiler is made with a specially developed EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber, which combines flexibility, to adapt to the required aerodynamics under all weather conditions and ambient temperatures, with the strength and elasticity to withstand impact damage from road particles.”
The pneumatically powered spoiler sets itself in three different modes to serve the car according to its needs. At low speeds, the spoiler retracts under the bumper to prevent it from scraping over speed bumps. It extends on the outside at higher speeds to channel air around the wheels in an intermediate position and in performance mode, it deploys in full to create extra front downforce.
