I like these spoilers the most, the "flush-kamm-back" looking ones :

They are for salt-flat speed records. I don't *think* they are for downforce. Aesthetically, I think they are "as cool" as the raised spoilers. I'll bet they are less practical in parking lots because they extend the length of the car and are therefore vulnerable to damage.

Hmmmm. In the "grey primer" image, there is a parachute tucked in the back. Maybe they're main purpose is to act as parachute shields?!?!?!?!?
