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?

  • Metal sintering rapid prototyping doesn't give the forging hardening but it allows an all-new family of metal-ceramic alloys that would be too hard to machine, too viscous to cast, and not deformable enough to be forged. in the near future, I can see turbos casing with integrated cooling channel coupled with a liquid intercooler.

  • Seen these 3d printed metal parts. They are really cool! The one i did see was stainless steel. Very complex print! These pistons with Koenigseggs free valve tech, you got yourself a uniQue motor baby!

  • This is a great example of 3D printing jettisoning us into the future. It's kind of ironic though that the future is EV. Will Porsche be printing pistons in 10 years? Probably not. By then there will be a powdered solution where you can just add water. LOL.

  • Given that the same approach can use other metals, I am thinking that it would be interesting to look into the idea for diesel pistons (where temps can easily get high enough to melt aluminum pistons, but are typically much slower reving so the weight may not be as big a deal)

  • We can't wait 10 years. Heck, we need it now, in all the cars that's selling right now. Then we can further downsize the engine to get the same power figure for greener environment. Or if you want power, just keep the engine size, and it can produce more powa baby!

  • so, what can we expect if porsche teams up with red bull power train and build the new power unit after honda leaving f1 ?? what about printing a turbo wheel that is 20% bigger with 80% of the weight? or embedding finer/better cooling channels in the block and cylinder head of the engine? cooling is already a huge problem in an f1 engine/car.

  • This is interesting technology, but I am wondering why they are concentrating on ICE when Europe is looking to ban all ICE new car sales over the coming years. I believe Norway is in 2025, UK in 2030 and almost all of Europe by 2040. Mercedes have basically stopped development on ICE engines, this seems like misdirected effort.
