3.0-liter inline-four?! That's like half a Corvette engine! ;)

EDIT: I didn't know Porsche made a 3.0 4cyl. engine.

A muscle car, gemacht in Deutschland. The only word I can say is AWESOME! Imagine if it had the new V8 engine with 500 PS, it would just fly!

This also used the 3L block and 2.7L head. Not a 2.5L turbo motor.

yeah they are rare from the factory, but a rebuilt 944 turbo motor bolts straight in with no mods. When Porsche made the turbo s 968 they just bolted a 944 turbo cylinderhead/ turbo and exhaust system and put a cool fiberglass hood on it. the motors are good for a relable 350 whp with 415 ft-lbs or up to 500 whp if you plan on drag racing.
