“We are examining whether it is possible to reduce the Cd value at certain points in the car body by systematically introducing vibrations,” said Professor Andreas Wagner, head of the automotive engineering program at the University of Stuttgart, Monday (10/10).
In this trial, it admits that there are still many challenges. According to him, this is reasonable considering that it is still in the early stages of development. However, Porsche is determined to produce the perfect vehicle.
“We have to make sure, for example, that passengers don’t hear any hum and that it still has some work to do before it goes into production,” he said.
Currently, Porsche is working on how to make its electric vehicles more efficient by promoting an aerodynamic design. In addition, there is also active Aero which still has a lot of potential and has not been widely used to make vehicles move in the air with little resistance.
“Computational fluid dynamic simulation has become very important in the last 20 years,” said Wagner.
On this occasion, it also stated that the research carried out by Porsche allows it to be better at making efficient vehicles, to allow its designers more freedom.
As is well known, as the automotive industry’s transition to electric drive accelerates, many automakers are looking for ways to make their cars more aerodynamic.
