    Ruf introduces V8 911 at Geneva

    sorry if repost

    http://wot.motortrend.com/6628586/auto-shows/2010-geneva-ruf-stuffs-v-8-into-911-calls-it-rgt-8/index.html

    sounds interesting.

    • 4.5L V8
    • 550HP, normally aspirated, 8,500RPM
    • engine is lighter than flat-6 in GT3RS, and also shorter, so can be mounted lower in the car
    • flat-plane crankshaft, so will this scream like a Ferrari?

    V8 may be roughly based off the Cayenne V8?  though given the crankshaft and revlimit, seems extensively reworked

    OMG nice idea from the tuner. This is quite the machine!

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    This is what Porsche should be doing with the 998......

     I agree, but with Flat-8.  Otherwise, I love the specsSmiley

    I bet it will fit in a 986.


    Re: Ruf introduce V8 911 at Geneva

    Putting that in my Cayman in a couple of years instead of replacing it could be interesting...

    "The Ruf 001 engine will be assembled in Pfaffenhausen, from castings produced by “a Formula 1 engine supplier” in Germany"

    How many F1 engine suplliers do we have in Germany ? Smiley
     

    "the oil tank is filled through an opening in the right rear fender as was the case on the 1972 dry-sump 911 RS."

    Very cool Smiley

    Will be very interesting to check the sound once the 991 testmules will lap the 'Ring. Still flat-6 or also a V8 similar to the RUF engine Smiley I don't think that Porsche will develop a flat-8 (not enough economies of scale...Smiley)

    Re: Ruf introduce V8 911 at Geneva

    I have to admit that I don't quite understand why RUF would do that but I guess nowadays you need to find something to differentiate from other tuners/manufacturers, so this may be it.

    Sorry but I still prefer an "old fashioned" ass whopping twin turbo charged engine in my 911.

     Sorry, meant "twin turbo charged flat six engine".

    ok yes well, that's fair enough!  i can definitely see why the purists would not approve!

    i have to admit that while the notion of a 911 screaming with a Ferrari sound is quite appealing, it is also rather strange.

    but then again, if we were all purists, we'd still be driving air-cooled flat-sixes eh? Smiley

    i have also just gotten confirmation directly from Pfaffenhausen that indeed the engine is an all-new "from the ground up" design, and not based off the Cayenne's or Panamera's V8.
