If you listened to yesterday’s Porsche 956 engine warmup audio, you might have noted the slightly staccato, somewhat silky quality of the twin turbo 2.65L flat-6 motor.

Today it’s time to listen to that motor’s evil twin, the single turbo, air-cooled 3.2L motor in the back of Hotchkis Racing’s 1986 Porsche 962.

It pops, it growls, it snarls, and at times, it even rumbles like an American V-8.

We move our microphone around a bit to hear the different ancillaries — the turbo (at 1:06), the valvetrain (at 1:16) and the air cooling fan (at 1:53) to revel in the brilliance of Weissach’s iconic endurance powerplant.
