Courier du Sud | Porsche announces that its V8 engines will remain around after 2030

While smaller engines are in vogue, Porsche is not yet ready to ditch the V8. Despite increasingly stringent emissions standards, Zuffenhausen's engineers are always one step ahead. The eight-cylinder engine has already been adapted to comply with Euro 7 standards, even if its entry into force has been postponed. It was scheduled to enter into force in 2025, but was postponed to 2030.

Compliance without resorting to hybridization

Porsche has revealed that new components have been developed to make the engine compliant with tougher environmental restrictions without necessarily relying on a hybrid setup to keep the V-8 alive, and Europe and North America will be less stringent than expected. On the other hand, other systems will force engineers to make unwanted changes. For example, the maximum permissible exhaust sound level will continue to decrease over the years. Tightening legislation on noise levels “makes it more difficult to get good feelings from V8 engines like the Panamera.

The quantity will decrease

Although the V-8 will continue into the 2030s, we suspect Porsche won't be producing a significant number of cars with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine by the end of the decade. In its 2023 Annual Sustainability Report published this month, the German automaker confirmed its forecast that electric vehicles will account for more than 80% of annual deliveries by 2030. However, it explained that achieving this goal depends “on the demand of our customers and on the development of electric mobility.” In different regions of the world.”

Electricity moves forward

The electric car attack that began with the Taycan in 2019 continues this year with the all-electric Macan. The 718 Boxster/Cayman EV is expected to launch in 2025, likely with the convertible first and the coupe soon after. It has already been confirmed that the successor to the current Cayenne is an electric car, ditching the gasoline engines.

And 911

The 911 won't be fully electric this decade, but a hybrid configuration will appear in early summer with the updated 992.2. Porsche hopes to keep the internal combustion engine alive by using nearly zero-carbon synthetic fuel, which it currently produces in Chile. The goal is to increase annual production to 145 million gallons by 2030.
