Porsche took to the 2016 International Vienna Motor Symposium to debut an all new twin turbo V8 powerplant. Rumor has it that this motor will make its first production debut under the hood of the Panamera. The engine will likely see play time in Audis, Bentleys and Lamborghinis in the future as well.

Porsche’s new engine will utilize new technology such as cylinder deactivation to help drive up fuel efficiency and should yield 30% less consumption than the outgoing motor. The V8 will still generate 549 hp and 567 lb/ft of torque. Sharing engines across various companies will help manage production costs and allow scalability for each manufacturer to more efficiently bring new vehicles to the market.
