    Take 30K and get a lot of fun from a Ecoboost Mustang. 60K for a Porche just dosn't sound as good with a 4.

    I think you guys completely overlooked Porsche's racing program by dismissing the 4cylinder road car potential. One word - LMP1...The 919 took the 2015 WEC championship and won Le Mans with the V4 hybrid. With the potential of the AWD electric/gas system the V4 engine has a lot of advantages of being as light as the outgoing 991 GT3 and potentially having way more usable torque with motor and charging capability with the ERS. Also it should be no surprise why they would be using 4 cylinder engines thanks to the latest purchase of Ducati. VW made quick alterations to their concepts buy implementing the Ducati engines into there XL design which is a bases to Porsche's use of the V4 engine in the 919.
