Who makes this rear spoiler?

This is like a "Super" RSR style tail that I have not seen before. It is NOT factory, AIR, GT racing, Getty. and has not been modified from one of those either.
It is very well made. Leads appreciated !

The "rubber" is painted , not separate

It does look a lot like the 74/75 RSR tails , that came with the rubber lip

You don't think it's just an IROC tail painted?

It's not an IROC tail

Look at the main air inlet opening

Can't tell if it's an illusion because of the angle or actually different. Never heard of there guys but they have some interesting stuffhttps://www.twinsparkracing.com/shop/911-rsr-rs-30-iroc-spoiler-whale-tail/

I don't think that the white car intake is an illusion
here's another pic of an oe '74 RSR



This is a friends oe RSR, w/ the regular large intake

Yes, the tail on #18 is patterned after the RSR tail, but has a more prominent kick up rear edge. A "cheater" version if you like. If we can find a replica RSR tail, that might be acceptable to the client too
The IROC is NOT what we are after. Twin Spark sells one that is probably the same dimensions as the original rubber edge RSR. I took a closer look at it and it has the right curves and dimensions
Thanks

that was the 1st thing I noticed as compared to an IROC unit. that one seems to sweep up at more of an arc and a bit higher than the IROC that is more abrupt and only about 1.5" tall.

I think that the tail is made for John James Racing. You might try contacting them...
