Porsche is designing super light pistons which are only possible by means of 3D printing. These light pistons will add a claimed 30 horsepower, but how can something a simple as a piston add that much mo' powah babeh? And why does it require 3D printing?

Could 10-20% lighter correspond to same weight but more displacement? Like a high RPM 2.5L I4 or high rpm 4L V6? Combine that with pneumatic valves and you could have 300HP all motor I4’s straight off the showroom floor.

Porsche already announced that they will go full electric except for the 911. Therefore I don't expect any big changes in the engine anymore. Maybe there will be a $400k special limited edition of 100 cars of the 911 with this pistons but I don't see it for mass production.

toh-poh is the correct Greek pronunciation, but it's commonly ta-pa. other than that a good video. and forged pistons have more slap because of the alloy they use, not because of the way they're made.

Jayhere Acum 2 Zile
I have to admit, I'm skeptical. Micro welding together a complete piston. It wasn't a matter of additional costs dumped on top. Or extra, additional processes the engine needs to be spec'd through. To them it was, let's leap into the discovery of new ground. To boldly go where no one has gone before. All car manufacturers have had huge flops. So, leave it to the Porsche engineers to think outside of the box. With the invention of 3D printing, it was a matter of time. Whether it initially started out as an innocent question, making an engineer go, hmmm; or just advanced engineering creative genius...it doesn't matter. Heat is the number one killer of engines. Example. A 3208 (V8) Caterpillar diesel engine is typically rated @ 210-214 hp in farm, heavy equipment and truck use. But the marine (boat) version has huge water coolers on each side, allowing them to pull 814 hp from one engine. All from adding massive cooling. And In this application from Porsche, they've added cooling. pump settings. Well done, Porsche. Well done.

I mean this is cool but if it takes under a decade its too long countries are banning gasoline and diesel engines soon anyways or they need to be hybrids so is this really worth it for the companies i think not and im not happy about this i love gasoline and diesel engines much as everyone does who likes loud and fast cars but im just saying laws are going to run this

Interesting - though no IC can compete with electric for torque, acceleration and efficiency, ^oo^

@bernardthedisappointedowl - You have a point but initial costs for the vehicles here in the U.S. are still very high.
bernardthedisappointedowl Acum 11 ore
@wickedcabinboy Price is definitely the big capital cost winner for petrol for now - Running costs though are much reduced with electric - not just the cheapness of the fuel (charged from home) but the maintenance of so fewer moving parts is much cheaper - Battery life is also proving to be very long as well in real world case uses. The question, I would suggest, is the direction of travel of technology - petrol cars are the culmination of over 100 years of development and improvements are now (like this one) incremental - Electric cars are just beginning - but year on year batteries get cheaper to make and quicker to charge (5mins for a 100 miles with the latest superchargers) - top end ranges are now 500 miles - so it is really only a matter of time before electric completely usurps IC cars - and I say that as someone who is very fond of the sound of a V8 or even a VW Beetle engine - that I'll miss. ^oo^
wickedcabinboy Acum 12 ore
@bernardthedisappointedowl - However in the area of lower cost, increased range and refueling convenience the internal combustion engine still wins out over over electric by a long shot.

So if it can be done for the pistons, it might be able to be done with the entire engine block, crankshaft, etc. The internal combustion engine will be perfected just in time for everything to go electric.

I love to see the evolution of ICE but here in the UK there will be no sales of gas and diesel cars in 10 years I read other countries will take longer but it does make me wonder about the money in R & D.
Thomas Moll
Thomas Moll Acum 4 Zile
So... In less than a decade the UK are not allowing sales of new combustion engine cars. Other countries will probably follow suit. Tesla alone will be producing around 15-20 million electric cars in less than a decade. So... Why the hell is Porsche still pumping so goddamn much money into this? Just to please racing enthousiasts who are addicted to the smell of burnt gas? If they're doing it for the power, have you seen what the new Model S Plaid+ does on a track? And yes, I know, it won't do more than a few laps, but still. In less than a decade, the development of BEV's will probably be so much further ahead of ICE cars...
They'll perfect the design 12 months after governments around the world start banning the production of new fossil fueled vehicles

Fearmylogic Acum 4 Zile
Honestly, I'd like to see how much more efficient a car could be, by using this 3D printing tech. If the internal moving parts are lighter, you should require less gas to get them to move at the same speeds as normal pistons ( or whatever part they want to replace with 3D printing ). This could especially help with long-haul trucking, where a greater fuel efficiency would lead to very large savings.

In theory, if its 3d printed, they could make these pistons to fit any car!
