Porsche celebrates Valentine's Day with its love for V8 engines.

Valentine’s Day not only marks a time to celebrate the love of a significant other but also the anniversary of Porsche’s introduction of the V8 engine platform into its fleet of performance-focused vehicles. 45-years ago, Porsche unveiled the 928 model at the 1977 Geneva Auto Show with ground-breaking 8-cylinder power. Since its debut, the V8 engine continues to operate as the beating heart behind Porsche brand icons like the 918 Spyder, multiple generations of the Panamera and Cayenne, and the most recent Cayenne Turbo GT release.

As a pioneer within the automotive industry, Porsche successfully delivered 61,000 examples of its first-ever V8-driven vehicle globally, which also took the title of the European Car of the Year. Alongside its presence as a performance road car, the Porsche V8 also found its role in the motorsports world with its participation in the Transsyberia Rally and Le Mans race series. From a modified Cayenne S speeding through the desert to an RS Spyder crossing the finish line at Sebring, the Porsche V8 established itself as a leader looking to continue its legacy. The Porsche V8 continues its longstanding involvement within the brand through modern examples of the Panamera and Cayenne models.
