2017 boxter 718
thanks for your insight.An 87 328 GTS is about as technically advanced as a ford fiesta in todays world, i also own Ferraris but up to date modern ones and again you would not be servicing them yourself without special equipment and a diagnostic tool.
The Porsche 718 and all other exotica of today are highly engineered, technical and software based platforms.
the belly pan on the 718 is designed for aero and cooling purposes, if it was beneficial to leave it off Porsche would not have included it as part of the design, these cars suffer with heat soak when pressed hard and need efficient cooling
Porsche would have saved the cost of fitting the third radiator if cooling could have been enhanced elsewhere, there are track teams that have experimented with removing the cowl and floor covers but they were put back in place with little modifications.
To achieve 15 HP per 100cc in standard form for the 2.0L is something that could only be dreamed of by Ferrari in the 90’s, these cars are capable of a reliable 22.5 HP per 100cc with a modest turbo upgrade and software tune.
At the end of the day its your car and can do what you like with it but i would not be messing with any designed Aero as the consequences in doing so could prove fatal especially at the speed these cars can travel (186MPH GPS my maximum speed to date)
it's all relative.
btw: that's why i asked the question. 🤤
