What is this part?

I'm curious about these parts that hang down about an inch or so below the underbody in front of the front tires.

What is this part called, and what is its function?

Just guessing, but is it an air dam, to help keep the tires on the road?

Or perhaps is its purpose to sacrifice itself to help keep the front end from bottoming out -- like a first line of defense?

There are a lot of uneven street surfaces all around where I live and work -- drains, streets meeting at hills, uneven elevations -- and unless I go extra slow and be careful to drive over uneven surfaces at a 45-degree angle (sort of counter-productive to the purpose of a Boxster), I might tear these things to shreds.

I found out (the hard way) that I have to reverse on to my driveway and drive forward off it. If I reverse off, that part gets damaged or ripped off, as I found at my last service. Its fairly cheap, and I think its called a 'spoiler' from my invoice.

Air ducting for the brakes as used on the GT3 and GT2.
