    What's the fixation on a V8? The boxer is a unique engine. Only 2 manufacturers (Porsche and Subaru, to my knowledge) have them and they are superb, from an engine dynamics and car handling perspectives.

    As far as installing a V8 using the space currently occupied by the rear seats... it does not matter - the vehicle center of gravity will rise no matter what. Keep it untouched - a boxer it is. Want a V8 get another car - I don't.

    I could see a boxer-8, but I still think the boxer-6 is plenty for the 11.

    Also... come to think of it... a boxer is a 180 degrees V-engine. In the present case, a 180deg V-6.



    actually ferrari makes the 180deg v, all the cars with extensions bb were boxer berlinetas, or boxer cupes.
    but ferrari abandond it becouse it less eficient in terms of underbody aero, you cant put a difuser under a boxer

    Re: Porsche mules testing on Estoril Circuit

    It does look stretched out. The distance from the door edge to the wheel well looks longer, and the rear window has camo, but the lines indicate a longer rear window. Do you think it's the 4 passenger platform they are testing; or a boxer 8?

    Re: Porsche mules testing on Estoril Circuit

    I was informed that the circuit was rented by Pirelli, and Porsche had nothing to do with those tests. They told me that Pirelli use several stock and modified Porsche models to test their tires. Can't confirm this info, but I saw the Estoril Circuit schedule, and Pirelli was the companie that rented the circuit on the days those pics were posted here, and on the press.
