Porsche believes in hydrogen


The idea of ​​Porsche engineers was to develop an engine cleaner than a traditional gasoline engine, while being as powerful but not more expensive. In order to limit the budget for this study, Porsche carried it out entirely virtually. The starting point was the 4.4-liter V8 used by the Cayenne and the Panamera. To adapt it to hydrogen, its compression ratio has been increased, as well as electrically assisted turbochargers have been retained in order to compensate for the lower combustion temperature.

This engine would develop 600 hp, but would above all reject much “cleaner” exhaust gases, without costing more thanks to the absence of particulate filters. Porsche does not intend to put this model into production at the moment, but this study is nonetheless promising.
