Before the sound barrier was broken, engineers viewed aerodynamics as annoying. It was unpredictable because computer technology was not up to the task. But there are certain visionaries who can “see” the air. General Yeager, Dale Earnhardt Sr, and Ferry Porsche knew how to use aerodynamics to their advantage. That is why the Porsche 911 Adaptive Aerodynamics are years ahead of their competitors.

Porsche pushed the industry into the modern era with the powered rear spoiler in 1989. The 964 series 911 had a tail that was either up or down depending on speed. This tradition evolved into include the front spoiler on the Turbo S models. But the new Porsche 911 is the first to offer active and variable surfaces instead of simply open or closed. It is similar to how their Italian cousins at Lamborghini use the ALA system on the Aventador SVJ and the Huracan Performante.
