Default Rear Wing for GS

I am looking for a rear wing for my 2011 GS and starting to get frustrated. When looking I find endless wings for the Mercedes, Porsche's,Mustang's and everything else, but the Corvette world seems to have been left behind. I am not interested in a spoiler, or the giant racing wings, but a wing style that accents the look of the vette.

Any ideas?

This might be as close as you can get before going to a pedestal style wing

I'll leave you in on a little secret.

Most Vette owners are not into bolt on, non functional, JC Whitney loooking kind of stuff. Most people will laugh at non functional wings for looks.

But, to each their own.

Just did a quick search and found a few, to include this one; is this the type of wing you're looking for? If so, it can be found here: https://www.corvettemods.com/C6-Corv...s%20ad%20group

Mcrider .....

Don't let these guys talk you out of putting a wing on your Corvette !

I like wings as much as you do ... In fact, here is a photo of the wing I have on my Porsche.

I will be having a very similar wing manufactured and installed my my C6 very soon.

You might be interested in something like this for your Corvette?




BTW ... Since the C6 Corvette is a slightly larger car than the Porsche, the wing I am having made for my C6 will be about 14" to 18" taller than the one in the photo above.

I'm not a fan of wings also but good luck in the search. That Porsche is really overdone.

I don't know about the rest but YES, I'm kidding.

Pretty sure Turbo's post was in jest also.

Every time I see a big ole wing on the back of any car going down the street I laugh my *** off.

The little four banger front wheel drive cars are especially hilarious.
