    The 930 had a ‘wet mode”, it was activated by the accelerator.

    Hasn't the Ferrari manettino always had a wet setting for many years now? 


    That's correct.

    I don't get the hype about this "new" Porsche feature at all. All what they've done is to install some sensor, that will tell you to switch to wet mode. As if I can't see and feel that on my own, don't need a sensor to tell me to do so. Smiley

    From the description of the Wet Mode, everything on the RWD model could have been decided and selected by the driver using the variables of individual functions (throttle, PDK gearbox, suspension).

    However, on the AWD model the Wet Mode sends consistently more torque to the front axle and that might be the only novelty of the system.

    To my understanding PSM and aero mode are also different in wet mode Smiley

    RC,

    I don't think it'll be IAA; the GT3 / RS / R models have been introduced at Geneva for a long time.  I think it'll be Geneva 2020.

    I've found this animation which is very explanatory of how the parameters change. It seems that not all the parameters could have been driver selected individually. Smiley

    Geneva 2020 would make most sense but it won't be this year there...I am quite positive.

    Yes I think it'll be 718 GT4 for Geneva.

    Production Taycan at IAA.

    That's the new spoiler, in near final form. Only minor aerodynamic refinement left.

    Kidding aside, the profile of the Speedster looks so much better than the unfortunate cabriolet.

    Apparently the portable BBQ may also function as a Portable Emissions Measurement System (PEMS) for measuring Real Driving Emissions...

    Re: OFFICIAL: The new Porsche 992 – a design icon and high-tech sports car

    We discussed it before...these aftermarket wing mods can be very dangerous, even if people often live in speed limited countries.

    It depends . If he drives within speed limits , there is no problem . If he goes over 140 km/h then it is a bad idea .

    I was at a track once where someone tested this setting . Instability started only when pushing above open road speed limits .  Putting it on and off is a very quick and easy job .

    But it is still stupid because he bought a GT2RS monster, the most extreme, to parade around the public streets and catrated it to a speed a Prius can do. That is the stupidity of it, looks like a fool imo, like buying a professional bicycle and putting training wheels and a basquet on it indecision

    Indeed indecision Using it in this setting only would be aberrant , unless they have many Starbucks around indecision  . Hopefully  he does  only to keep it as a low profile going to work and on the week ends he puts the wing back and takes it to Yas Marina !
