You have probably learned by now that Porsche engineers leave nothing to chance. Because their customers aren’t scared of bad weather, the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S wet weather testing was a critical part of the new 992 series development. It must be nice to have a closed course capable of flooding on a sunny day. They could have just waited a few months and shipped them here to Florida for a proper test of Wet Mode. So far, Spring has brought morning showers, which makes my morning commute in a CTS-V much like tap dancing in a minefield. #facepalm
It is easy to see the differences between the 911 Carrera S and the 911 Carrera 4S, as the latter is All Wheel Drive. Both cars have microphones tuned to listen for rain behind each wheel, and Wet Mode changes several systems at an instant. Porsche Stability Management and Porsche Traction Management are given free reign to open the aerodynamics for more downforce. The brake calipers are held closer to the rotor to keep them dry, and the computers slow down the connection between your right foot and the engine’s response. This is just another reason why the 2020 Porsche 911 is better than your car, so click the link below to find one for yourself.
