    Carrera GT Maximum Ground Clearance ?

    1) How much additional ground clearance does a CGT require to make it practical on the street? 0.5 inch? 1 inch? 2.0 inches? Ben,lj says 3.4 inches/86 mm is not sufficient. He requires another 0.50 inch/13 mm.

    2) What's the maximum the car can be raised before the aerodynamics are affected?

    One is going to Russia. A Porsche engineer reports that in order to improve clearance on poor roads, its springs are being raised by 10mm - the maximum that the sensitive underfloor aerodynamics will allow.

    Ben, would you take the 0.39 inch/10 mm raise like the Russian customer or would you want more and be willing to live with slightly reduced aero stability? During your mountain drives, do you require maximum aero stability?
