Hey, yeah the vent under the spoiler is correct, it would look good on the 370Z, and I heard it helps increase down force. Its part of the reason why the GT3 RS is so fast around a track.

The Porsche GT3's engine is in the rear of the car. Here's why it has those vents:

Like others have said "this is due to a rear engine." As far as adding down force, I would start getting my info from some one else who know what they are talking about!!

If down force is what you want, check this mod out:

So does this mean I can not have the rear vents because it needs an engine or? Can it not just go over the glass, surely it would help with traction due to more weight over the rear wheels?

The RS is a street legal track car. It was purpose built to go fast around a track...

So yes, while the rear bumper vents/ducts do aid in engine cooling, they do aid in down force by cutting down on the "parachute" effect (I don't know the proper term) of the rear bunper. However, you also need to realize the undercarriage, wing, front fender vents,etc. all play a role. Doing only one will upset the characteristics of how the vehicle handles at speed.

I had contacted Verus (formerly Velox) about producing undercarriage panels for the Z similar to the ones the make for the 86s, WRX/STI and Miatas. But due to the piss poor reception of the diffuser they produced for us, they won't be making anymore parts for the Z34.

Hey dude, thanks for the info!

So if I was to also get some custom style GT3 RS undercarriage panels produced, I could then have this rear panel over the glass as well to reduce the parachute effect.
