    In testing, it soon appeared that the Porsche did not work well on the race track. Porsche factory driver Brian Redman recalled that "it was incredibly unstable, using all the road at speed. The suspension and the stability of the frame were suspected, but modifications did not improve the problem. As with former underpowered Porsches, the aerodynamics had been optimized for low drag in order to do well on the fast straights of Le Mans, Spa, Monza and elsewhere. The significance of downforce for racing was not yet fully realized although Can-Am and F1 cars were using wings by that time..
