Re: 911 aero study: note the wheel covers: attachment, how far they protrude from the wheels, tires, and body sides, and the gap around the circumference for brake cooling flow.

Also lack of radio antenna, passenger mirror block-off plate, radiussed leading edges vs production 911 of that time, lack of panel gaps in the front, nose undertray, rocker extensions, fixed flush plexi wing and rear side windows, lack of undertray at the rear (Oh no! Parachute!) and lack of "speed holes" in it, and lack of hiding the wipers (because they are largely in a still air bubble).

Contrary to my long held generic belief about most stand-off spoilers, this one must improve aero or it wouldn't be there.
