I don't drive, I fly.
And he originality stated 16 cylinder, regardless of configuration.

Besides if you want the BEST sounding engine. period. I know it has been posted a billion times on FG but work with me here.


Exactly, I only said 16 cylinders. I kept the BRM out because it?s a given and a racecar. :)

Must spread some 930s around...

Beautiful... The genesis of an icon, the 911 Turbo. It's amazing to think it was very close to being quite a different story. One of the proposals was to make the Turbo only as a limited edition hard core racer (think road going 934/ Turbocharged Carrera RS), but at the last moment they decided to make it a "mainstream" model, more "friendly", and GT-ish with a wider appeal. And the fact it was born right into the OPEC-oil crisis, which when you think about it, made sense; small engine, relatively big power on demand...

6 side exhausts and 4 at the back? Needs more. The size of those pipes looks a bit too small as well.
