    Porsche Debuts A New Twin-Turbo V8 Engine


    • A New-Twin Turbo V8 marks a new family of engines at the Volkswagen Group

    Porsche has been tasked with developing a new V8 engine for the Volkswagen group and the first fruits of the program have been announced at the Vienna Motor Symposium this week.

     

    Car and Driver reports Porsche unveiled a new twin-turbo V8 engine that will be used in the next-generation Panamera and Cayenne. Loosely based on Audi's new turbocharged 3.0L V6, the V8 engine produces 550 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Compared to the current 4.8L V8, the new V8 can consume 30 percent less fuel thanks to a cylinder-deactivation system. Porsche says the V8 engine has been designed to accept stop-start systems and hybrid systems.

     

    The V8 is expected to be used in vehicles underpinned by either Audi's MLB (front-wheel drive) or Porsche's MSB (rear-wheel drive) platforms.

    WOW, I am actually just amazed at how UNDERWHELMING these TTV8 engines are in HP and Torque. GM does this with natural V8's so what is so hard about others doing it also. You have the added weight of the turbo system, probably the stupid overhead cam crap and GM has forever been showing you can already do this with a proper Pushrod setup.

     

    FAILED! that is what this is.

     

    Bloated under performing V8 engine with excessive weight and complexity.

    Lol.

     

     

    Show me an N/A GM V8 that makes 800hp with a tune and supporting bolt-ons.  :palm:  :stupid:

     

     

    If this were a Cadillac with this engine, you and others would be creaming themselves.  <_<

    Nope, do not need to cream myself or be excited as I have never cared for Turbos, Supercharged yes but not turbo's.

     

    Oh wait, that is right GM already has a naturally aspirated V8 with a bolt on Supercharger and cooler that can easily be tuned to 800HP!

    It's probably massively underrated like most engines from German makes.

     

    Obviously this is enough power for most cars. But the big thing is the proposed increase to FE. 30 percent ain't bad.
