I think what you just quoted is what came back to haunt Porsche...the coffin nails in this particular battle!

"poisonous" to "normal" and by changing "oversteer" to
"understeer." He was also ordered to delete his
recommendation that the vehicle's handling be changed to
understeering.


wow.

Although I don't agree with suing for every nook and cranny, it's still pretty bad that Porsche did that.
