How come one has a brake light and the other does not?

Lower profile which does not block the 3rd brakelight in the rear window.
The OEM Sport Classic has the brake light because of the height.
I know it may sound funny with a Speed Yellow car, but I like subtle.

Actually no. About $1400 (shipping, brokerage from Cali, paint & taxes, self install) but I gather it'll still be another $100 to unprogram the spoiler option at the dealer.
And we pay 13% tax up here in Ontario so it should be a lot less in the US.

Ok this must be for the classic version. How hard was it to install? My spoiler is already disabled so that done.

It's not an actual Porsche Sport Classic.
Don't quote me but I believe the trunk lid with the power spoiler is the same on both narrow & wide bodies. Just the rear quarter panels are wider but check to be sure.
As for install, (I already had the old one removed for color match in about an hour or so) after being painted, the whole process of lining up, marking drilling mount holes (drill backwards at low speed on fibreglass) and install took 1 beer and 1 well aged Cohiba Siglo II's time.

Nice! Let's install some Fuchs and we'll all be almost perfect.

I don't see any slots for air that the fan would draw in? What's the point in the fan without venting?

Fan stays where it is. It vents from the top just like the GT3-RS.
Same grills. I'll post a pic of the open trunk later for you to see.
