Komo-tec just revealed their carbon fiber GT style wing for the Emira. Official pricing coming next month with first deliveries in February! Excited to see aftermarket offerings already! What do you think?

That's more like the Exige Cup or Evora GT430 wing. The Emira GT4 wing is a swan neck:

Good point! I adjusted the description. I was thinking of the 981 Porsche GT4 wing. ;)

Thank you for posting but it would be a hard no for me. I have never liked the wings with the metal brackets. They always looked especially horrible to me on the Cayman.

Same. I always preferred the cleaner paint matched spoilers on production cars. The metal brackets always looked too aftermarket for me.

Kind of worried about mounting something on that flimsy plastic trunk lid. Does it have a metal bracket that goes on the other side? The holes on the inside should provide great drainage :D

They _have_ to provide a reinforcement bracket, and without stiffeners in place this wing is going to be mostly for show.

Not my cup of tea on a car like the Emira. It would also mess with the balance of the car if it's good at being an actual wing. In this case you would need a counterpart at the front. Not sure why anyone would just put the wing on its own on the car other than visual appearance.

I don’t like it at all, this seems more of a style piece than a functional wing.

Was looking for more of an Emira GT4 swan neck wing with a front splitter to match.
To be fair it will never truly be functional unless you mount it through the boot and directly onto the chassis.
Should make the boot easier to shut though lol

Oh it can absolutely be functional without being bolted directly to the chassis and sacrificing the hatch lid, but that requires some actual engineering work -- but that's a whole lot more work than drill 4 holes into plastic ;)

Thanks for sharing. That’s not going to be for me, I’m not drilling holes in my new car. It’s cool for those that enjoy the look, but I’d rather do reversible mods.
