Before you get too excited. Porsche isn't looking to Turbo charge their existing flat 6, but instead introduce a Turbo charged 4 cylinder power plant. Sure the performance will be great, it's a Porsche. But will it be better? Subaru has a great turbo charged flat-4, but for some reason it's not inspiring or exciting sounding for a Porsche product.
We all want the drive the fastest car available on the market. The easiest way to increase horsepower is to add a Turbo to an existing power house motor. And when people hear TURBO and Porsche they can't help but think of the ultimate Porsche 911 Turbo.
It seems everyone is a little sad about this new direction, but I guess we should give it a try. Or just keep drive our vintage Porsches.
