    The problem isn't in the configuration (it never is), but it would definitely be in the purpose for use of the car. It was built to race short courses, so it doesn't need to be reliable. For all we know, it's a piece of crap! All I know is that it seems to bve a piece of French art, so I've gotta love it!

    what do you mean the configuration is not to blame? dont you think that 6 cylinder engine is a little overworked? i mean, would it last at least 50k miles? because, u know, you can strap a rocket to a car to take you to 100 in a sec, but how reliable is that. know what i mean?

    the big turbos on smalll engine theory should work well though, look at some LM cars (such as the MG)

    Inline and flat 4 and 6 cylinder engines are the best designed engines ever made. They last alot longet then any other engine does. Might be why Porsche has been using a flat 6 for all these years. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Porsche uses the flat six because it is compact and makes for a very low engine.

    0 RPM THAT'S NOT RIGHT. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>
     
  9. Re: LOOKS?

    No, Porsche uses the non turbo and the twin turbo flat six engine because when used in their cars it is perfectly balanced. Also the fact that history actually proves something. As Porsche has been using the same flat six for quite a while now
