Porsche Engine Porn at DRT2020 Porsche Festival

Updated: Feb 12, 2020

Tech Tuesday – Porsche engines from the DRT2020 Porsche Festival in Miami is the focus of Tech Tuesday. Many cars had their hoods open to enjoy the engines as well as the exterior and interior of their Porsche.

Some Porsche flat six engines were naturally aspirated and some were turbocharged, but they were all beautiful. These Porsche engine photos are focus on the Porsche flat-six air-cooled engine with one hybrid version: it is a four cylinder 964 engine.

What, you say; a four-cylinder 964 engine. Yes, Rod Emory of the famous 356 Outlaw build fame created a four-cylinder turbocharged engine using a six-cylinder Porsche 964 case that he re-cast to produce this 393 horsepower.

The Reimagined Porsche 911 by Singer of course has an engine of beauty as you would expect from three-quarters of a million dollar Porsche from a Porsche 964 and backdated to the look of an early 911. Of course when the engine is popped it looks nothing like an early-911 engine.

Turbo engines were everywhere with bonnets open to show the various turbochargers from Turbo Kraft, Kremer, RUF and Kokeln. Most of these were featured in modified Porsche 911s and probably produced 400 to 500 hp depending on the other engine work.

One particular flat-six Porsche engine of interest to me was a twin-plug Porsche 911 engine as seen here.

The exterior of this early-911 Targa displayed at The Collection Cars & Coffee as a pre-event to DRT2020 looked stock until you went to the open engine bay. On display was a beautiful clean engine with unknown modifications but the non-standard air box says it is not stock.

There were also stock 911 engines that were detailed fine and just pretty to look at due to the meticulous nature of the engines.
