Default Ride Height questions

I must be one of only two or three who doesn't know this yet, but what is the difference between SUV ride height and ROW ride height? How much lower is the ROW height?

Does any one have a photo showing two cars next to each other to demonstrate this?

I gots what you need. (Most of your questions can be answered in my Suspension DIY (see link in my signature)).

The difference in ride height is the following:

USA Standard: Front 174mm, Rear 157mm
USA Sport: Front 174mm, Rear 157mm

ROW Standard: Front 154mm, Rear 147mm
ROW Sport: Front 144mm, Rear 127mm

Carrera S/4S: Same as Sport for USA / ROW as appropriate
Carrera RS: Front 124mm, Rear 107mm

These are measured at the Porsche Reference points under the car, but generally speaking the difference at the wheel well will be GREATER than the difference at the reference points. But, you can see, that at the reference points the ROW Standard height is about 20mm lower in the front/10mm lower in the rear; ROW Sport height is 30mm lower all the way around; and RS height is 50mm lower all the way around. Remember, 25.4mm=1 inch. Wow.

Here is a gif illustrating the point (my car--US ride height lowered to RS+5mm ride height):
