I read somewhere that Porsche abandoned the water/air intercooler after the 934 because as the water heated up the intercooler became less efficient than an air/air unit.
I think it was the (racing) rulesmakers that originally banned the water-cooled intercooler. So Porsche had to use an air-to-air intercooler.
