Boxer engine

When it comes to the boxer engine, the pistons are operating in an 180° angle on the crankshaft's sides. This is the reason why this engine design is also known as "the V engine". Because of the design, the engines are flat and require less engine bay height. The most famous boxer engine is the one that was produced for the VW Beetle. The most remarkable evolution of a boxer engine is found in Porsche 911 cars.
