That tiny rear deck aeroblade actually works?

Do you think they blocked off the radiator for the wind tunnel test?

Would such a move be unheard of or normal operating procedure?

EDIT: looking for an answer, did not find one.

2018 Porsche 911 vs. 2018 Aston Martin DB11
The front grille of the 911 uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The DB11 doesn’t offer active grille shutters.
Maybe for 2019 they added active shutters to the DB11?
