Notice that some cars have a scoop that starts at the edge of the windshield, and others start further back like my 07 Exige. Why is that?

Thanks.

The 240 and 260 had scoops up to the window. The 220 (s) had the mid scoop. The 2006 exige has the same scoop, but it is blocked off.

Doh! A buddy asked me that at work. I tried to find the answer for 3 hours.

Thanks!

The scoop that picks up airflow farther forward near the windshield gets higher pressure and the airflow to drag ratio is better.
