My "guess"? The lawyers. ITs a SUV. Its NOT a sports car. They cannot have these cars doing 360s because some mother with her kids in the back took a turn too fast and spun the car on loose gravel or any wet surface and the tail smacked a pole. I believe they do NOT want the cars to oversteer. The driver will lift and the tail end will come out. Thats my opinion. Its not a Performance thing, its not a "performance" car. Do you see any Ring times for any Macan? Nope. Its meant for hauling and bad weather. Some here might think it a sports sedan. Fine, their opinion, but its NOT the classic definition of a sports car.grim,
So which is it then, (1) Porsche knows best or (2) Lawyers made them do it? I just want the real story and why wouldn't everyone that cares about performance? I realize there are plenty that will never track their cars, but I certainly will.
I posted looking for maybe something that I don't understand about the setup and dynamics that would make it different than what I understand from tracking my vehicles. Why would you inflate the rear so highly? So far all I see is that we should just accept it because either I'm dumb and Porsche knows best or that it is explained by the liability issue.
Next year I guess I will get a chance to test it, but I strongly surmise that even with reversed pressures (higher in the front), the recommended pressures will make it understeer significantly.
