Porsche could make their fender flares seamless on the GT3 RSR, but instead they decided to put a nice sharp crease to define the fender flare, even though that probably hurts aerodynamics more than helps.

There are plenty of non-functional things on the GT3 RSR, because after all, one of the biggest parts of motorsports is looking good for the customers and the sponsors.
