I was at the Hawthorne supercharger and I pulled up and there were three guys working on one Tesla. I asked them what they did and they told me that they were aerodynamic engineers and that they helped design the Tesla from day one. I spoke to one them for like 30 mins and he noticed that I had the old style glossy spoiler on my car. He said that the talk of the spoiler being cosmetic was totally false and that he designed the spoiler himself and it took him 10 weeks to design and wind tunnel test. He said it gives a HUGE improvement in performance at high speed. He said that they were pushing for Tesla to advertise that to consumers in the beginning but in the end most of the sales team were saying that it was cosmetic.
