The Dive Planes for the Porsche 718 GT4 were specifically designed to increase front-end downforce, increase the high-pressure airflow to the factory intake duct, and to keep drag increase minimal.
They produce a safe aero balance with or without the addition of our rear wing. The units were designed in CAD using scan data and optimized using CFD within OpenFOAM.
These units are constructed from 1.5mm thick pre-preg, autoclaved cured, 2x2 twill carbon, with an automotive clear finish.
Dive planes also referred to as canards, allow you to shift the aero balance forward, possibly aiding you and your setup in balancing out a large rear wing or diffuser.

Dive planes help tune the aerodynamic balance of a vehicle by shifting the balance forward without the need of a larger front splitter. A larger front splitter can be prohibitive to driving the car on the street, thus we were able to create a street-able package that produces enough front end downforce to balance the large rear wing and diffuser on our kit. We developed the dual dive plane kit to work well with our Ventus 1 Aero kit for the GT4.
Another goal of the dual dive plane kit was to feed the intake ducts clean, high-pressure air to improve engine power. At high rates of speed, this high pressure can build-up in the intake and create a small supercharge effect (positive pressure) in the intake manifold to improve horsepower and torque. This also ensures that the GT4 is receiving the coldest air possible at the intake filter.
