Possible in a decade or so. At leats from a power output point of view. Especially when everything is hybrid-ized which should add another 20% to 80% increase in power depending on the hybrid system employed.
Even if this happens, though, the turbo 6 won't go away - it will simply move up a slot and replace the V8. Though the V8 may still remain for higher end vehicles and SAVs.
