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.

      The diesel emission scandal has caused many automakers to rethink plans and possibly end development on diesel powertrains. Volvo has already announced that it would not be developing any new diesel powertrains in the coming years. Now, Porsche could be following them.
      Porsche CEO Oliver Blume tells Reuters the company will make the decision whether or not it will continue developing diesel engines by the end of the decade. 
      "Of course we are looking into this issue. We have not made a decision on it," said Blume.
      "For the generations that will follow there are different scenarios."
      Blume said over the next 10 to 15 years, Porsche would offer a mix of combustion engines, plug-in hybrid vehicles, and electrics. 
      Currently, diesels make up 15 percent of Porsche's global sales. In 2016, the German automaker sold a record 237,778 diesel vehicles - comprised of the Cayenne, Macan, and Panamera.

      Audi could be raiding Porsche's engine room for the next-generation S8. According to Evo, Audi will be using the twin-turbo 4.0L V8 found in the Panamera Turbo for the S8. The engine will be detuned from 542 horsepower to 530 for S8. That's still a noticeable improvement from the 513 horsepower the current model produces. Evo speculates the new engine will rocket the S8 to 60 mph in 4 seconds and hit a top speed of 185+.
      There will also be a more potent S8 on offer known as the S8 Plus. Again, Porsche will be providing the powertrain. In this case, it will be plug-in hybrid powertrain from the upcoming Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. The twin-turbo 4.0L V8 is paired up with a 136 horsepower electric motor to deliver a total output of 680 horsepower and 626 pound-feet. This powertrain will be detuned for the S8 Plus - possibly to 630 horsepower and 600 pound-feet. Still, that should provide a 0-60 time in under four seconds.
      The S8 and S8 Plus are expected to debut early next year.
