Then the Porsche 911 is done, it is set by the Boxster, Cayman passed, Porsche 911 GT3 is for Geneva, the Porsche Panamera may be fine for Shanghai, the Porsche Macan is for Frankfurt, the Porsche 918 Spyder, it is bordered to the end of the year. It has come time for the engineers of the constructor’s District of Zuffenhausen in Stuttgart to find an occupation and what better way of addressing one of the references of the market of supercars to deal, I mean the Ferrari 458 Italia…
This is not the first time that I am talking about the Porsche 960 but until now we were on the engine of the Porsche 918 Spyder in basic version with hybridization. But since ten days, spoke of another mechanical option and to verify the rumors, editors of AutomobileMag went fishing for information and they report the following:
For the future killer Ferrari F 458, Porsche now consider an engine 8 cylinders but still flat. It would be a 3.9 L engine 960 Flat eight boosted by four turbochargers, two intercoolers, 4 camshafts infinitely adjustable, dual stage exhaust and ultimately a sporty 625 to 650 hp with a torque very important under the engine. This supercar is offered with a gearbox with double clutch 7-speed power who take him to 4WD. The manufacturer also says that the car will built aluminum, magnesium and carbon fiber to contain the mass around 1350-1375 kg.
If Porsche has flow 918 copies of the Porsche 918 Spyder, the future Porsche 960/961 should sell at about 3000-3500 units per year.
No more information for now if it is an illustration made from elements identified by oue colleagues from AutomobileMag. The German supercar should make its appearance in early 2016 (Detroit or Geneva?) Before being marketed with the vintage 2017. A matter a little distant but we will be happy together.
