The Porsche 911 flat-six is an iconic engine. This rear-mounted engine is the heart of probably the most talked about and praised sports car of all time. Let’s watch it get dissected!


The people at 911 Magazine produced a video showing what exactly makes the German monster tick. This stop motion video shows a comprehensive teardown of a 911 flat-six in high definition. It’s undoubtedly pretty cool-looking. The attention to detail that engineers at Porsche put into this 3.2 liter version is, plainly, impressive.


Teardown videos of expensive sports car engines are great, but I want to see a high-definition teardown of something less-than-stellar, like a Ford Duratec or maybe even a Chrysler 2.2L Turbo. For those, though, I’m guessing I’ll have to wait.

Lance Tedford spends his energies working on his 1985 Chrysler LeBaron. He is extremely tall and can never die.
