Porsche News: Porsche Debuts A New Twin-Turbo V8 Engine

Recommended Posts

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.

      Nine years ago, Porsche introduced its first diesel-powered model, the Cayenne SUV. This was followed by diesel variants of the Panamera and Macan. But Porsche has now ended production of all diesel models.
      According to Autocar, Porsche has ended sales of the Macan S Diesel and Panamera 4S Diesel. A Porsche spokesman said the move mirrors the “cultural shift” of the brand's customers. The spokesman also mentioned, “another software update” for the diesel engines that are part of “ongoing consultation with the authorities”, likely hinting at regulatory issues concerning the future of these engines.
      The removal of diesel is no great loss to Porsche as a source tells Autocar the fuel only made up 15% of automaker’s total worldwide sales. Porsche's focus will now be on hybrids and the upcoming Mission E electric vehicle.

      First Porsche Found after a Century plus, EV P1 at the Beginning!

      Always exciting to learn things about founders of car companies and in this case it is even more exciting as Porsche is not new to the EV Auto. In 1898 Ferdinand Porsche built himself the first Porsche vehicle. and it was placed in an Austrian shed in 1902 and forgotten about till 2017 and then on Monday was added to the Porsche History Museum in Stuttgart Germany.
      Let's back up a bit and give some details that auto nuts love to know about.
      Ferdinand Porsche founded his company in 1948 and before then was a man who had no formal engineering training but an aptitude for it as he worked for coach builder Jacob Lohner.
      Mr. Porsche was asked by Mr. Lohner to come up with an electric powertrain. Mr. Porsche continued his work and on June 26th 1898 the "Egger-Lohner EV C.2 Phaeton was put on the streets of Vienna Austria. Mr. Porsche engraved P1 on all the components he designed and built which was the key components of the powertrain. 
      Here is the specs of the P1:
      Electric motor weighed 287 lbs. Produced 3 HP continuous and had spurt mode to 5 HP as achieved in overdrive mode. Top speed of 21 mph. Vehicle weight before battery pack 2000 lbs. Battery pack weight 1000 lbs with 50 mile range. September 1899 Mr. Porsche entered a car race where the contestant had to complete 24 miles with 3 passengers as fast as they could. Mr. Porsche piloted his EV Auto across the finish line 18 min ahead of the 2nd place finisher and more importantly where more than half of the contestants failed to finish at all due to technical problems according to the museum history telling.
      Today Porsche has the Panamera gas-hybrid sedan as well as the 918 gas-hybrid racer. from 3 hp to 887 hp, from 21 mph to 211 mph. Mr. Porsche would be proud of where his company has gone and especially that they are going back to his original roots and first powertrain that he developed and believed in.
