Porsche To Use 1.6L Turbo Engine


A latest report coming in says that Porsche is planning a horizontally opposed 4-cylinder engine range starting from as small as 1.6-liter. Insiders says that the new engines are already on the drawing board and as expected these new engines will be more fuel-efficient and cut CO2 emissions by almost 30%.

It is not all bad news for Porsche boxes fans as the good news is that the new engines will keep a genetic link to the iconic flat-six engines used by the Porsche 911 for decades. Porsche is already using a new V4 engine on the new 919 Hybrid Le Man race car.

The engines will be offered with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed dual-clutch PDK.
