FLAT-SIX DES­TINY

Herald Sun - Motoring - - PRESTIGE -

PORSCHE’S new 3.0-litre flat-six turbo will find its way grad­u­ally into most other mod­els in the ex­ten­sive 911 line-up but not the range-top­ping Turbo.

Boxer en­gine boss Thomas Wasser­bach prom­ises the next Turbo en­gine will be “around” the same ca­pac­ity as the cur­rent 3.8-litre, which bangs out up to 412kW, and will definitely be more fuel-ef­fi­cient.

The en­gi­neer says. “For us it is not OK to pro­duce a new Turbo en­gine with higher consumption.”
