Those 3 engines provide it all from smooth linear power delivery to top end pull, torque, sound...you name it.
This comparison makes no sense really...you succede the 3.8 liter in the 991 is a better engine, so you pick prob their worst engine to compare to BMWs arguable best...what good is it comparing if youre not apple to apples on best vs. best?
I can understand not comparing to the 4.0, thats just unfair, but the 3.6/3.8 would be essentially what would be apples to apples.
....who would have guessed you would be in here?
Did you ever think for just one moment that he is looking to compare the engines on the cars that he is contemplating buying? No, you immediately have to dig in even tighter on the Porsche nutsack. I have never seen anything like it.
OP - every engine in every Porsche ever made was built with the hands of God. The engineering and craftsmanship is far better than anything ever produced by anyone in this universe. The engineers at all of the F1 shops are simply in awe of everything that Porsche puts on the table and only wish they could be even half as remarkable as those put out by the boys in Stuttgart. Please sell any car that you have that does not have the Porsche crest on it. Otherwise, you are clearly just pissing in the wind. Thanks for listening,
