2022 Huracan EVO RWD (Ordered)
^^Then depression set in.
Porsche went water cooled also to meet emission requirements. That is also the major push for electric cars.Car manufactures make the cars the customers buying new cars demand. That’s not necessary the kind of people writing comments in a forum wants. In most cases car manufacturers can’t survive on people writing comments in a forum.
Today used exotic sport cars with manual transmissions are sold for a lot of money, because you can’t buy that kind of cars anymore. But the manufactures stopped making them because the people who bought new exotic cars didn’t want them. The same with air cooled 911’s. 25 years ago Porsche wasn’t hardly selling any cars. The air cooled concept was seen as old fashioned and power output was restricted by the two valve setup. But today these used cars are sold for fantasy money. But that doesn’t help Porsche 25 years ago. So they started making water cooled cars.
They could have passed the emission legislation of 25 years ago with a air cooled car as well. The cooling concept doesn’t really affect the emissions. It’s the exhaust after treatment system that decides your emission level.Porsche went water cooled also to meet emission requirements. That is also the major push for electric cars.
You are half right. You can make up your own opinion but not your own facts.They could have passed the emission legislation of 25 years ago with a air cooled car as well.

Dude, I worked at Porsche in Weissach back then.You are half right. You can make up your own opinion but not your own facts.
Why did Porsche go water-cooled?
"Because Porsche wanted to keep up with the competition, meet tougher emission standards, and yield better performance and engineering feats, all engines in Porsche models switched to a water-cooled design."
"In order to to produce horsepower you must produce heat. Water cooled engines can transfer the damaging heat faster and better than air cooled engines thus allowing for higher power outputs. A side benefit of liquid cooled engines is engine noise reduction and also tighter temperature control can be maintained helping control of emissions easier."
"At the time tighter and tighter emissions, noise and fuel economy regulations were putting the pinch on air-cooling."
What ever you say Dude.Dude, I worked at Porsche in Weissach back then.
Like I wrote above the two valve setup was limiting the power output, and horsepower sells. So that was the main driver for the switch to water cooled. That allowed them to use four valve technic and increase the power output.
Car manufactures always blames everything of emissions, but Porsche could easily have past emission tests with a air cooled engine.
Yes, and the inside information from the engineers doing the engine development was power reasons. You were not there....Right out of the official Porsche News Release from air cooled to water cooled on the 996.
"as well as on meeting updated safety and emissions regulations."
The eighth generation of the Porsche 911 will celebrate its world premiere in Los Angeles on 27 November. It’s 55 years since the original 911 model debuted, and so a perfect opportunity to take a look back at the previous seven generations. Part 5: the type 996.newsroom.porsche.com
The tired refrain of every guy who has an old dated slow car. Your car may be newer, faster and look better but my car has “soul”. And can play 8 track tapes.There is much more to a car than the 0-60 time. Only those that are insecure would ever feel or even think that way.
Not entirely. They, too, are responsive to having governing bodies hold guns to their heads, figuratively and literally, and force them to cater to the insane whims of climate change cult acolytes.Car manufactures make the cars the customers buying new cars demand.
