Does anyone have a 997.1 with factory fitted Aero Kit?

Not dealer fitted, but fitted by the factory.

If so, I was wondering if Porsche removed the spoiler control switch from the set under the climate control panel.

As far as I can see, all 997’s (inc Turbos) have the switch except GT3 & GT2 models.

Just exploring ideas.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The 997 GT2 and GT3 were fitted with a fixed wing which didn't require any involvement from the driver, hence no internal switches.

Agreed.

I just wondered if Stuttgart removed the spoiler switch if a client had specced the Aero Kit when placing the car order.

I have seen aerokit cars with the spoiler switch still in place. I would assume the switch is disabled though.

Thanks C4 Silver.

This sold car claims to have the factory fitted aero kit and the photo shows the spoiler button too.

Same with this car. Seems odd that they would leave the spoiler switch.

And one more.

All claim to be factory fitted with the Aerokit yet have the spoiler switch.

I guess that’s a wrap then.

The easiest way to confirm this is with your friendly OPC, speak to them and tell them your thinking of buying a 997 and ask them to check it’s build spec.

I’ve thought about using the button for something else to be honest, presuming the wiring is all there I’d thought about rigging it up to the fans under the boot lid so I could over ride them ?

So. I conclude that the GT2, GT3 & GT3 RS were the only cars without the spoiler button.

That’s interesting as I’ve just sourced a switch panel from a GT3 (without the spoiler button). Buttons that aren’t needed irritate me.

DM me if you need help with this. I’ve had the 2 switch packs apart and have drawn out the circuit boards for both types. I have the wiring diagram so I could tell you what is possible to re-use the spoiler switch.
