If Porsche thought water/air was a great benefit to road cars all turbos would have them today. I'm sure that the disadvantages that you listed weighed in to their decision.
I ONLY speak "strict" thermodynamics - its what I do for a living.

Yes racing was and is used as a mule for Road cars - agreed.

The reasons I listed above ARE the reasons their road cars do not use air to water. Back in 1988, $350,000+ Ferrari F40s rear engined turbocharged monsters like the 911 Turbo used Behr air to air intercoolers.

I can go on and on...but I am already boring and grumpy.

Ole Skool - wouldn't have it any other way
