As we all know the more cylinders the engine has the better sound it makes. The V8s, V10s, V12s are champions in that department because even if they don’t make big power they always deliver glorious soundtrack. The six-cylinder power plants are also known to make good sounds but rarely do you hear that somebody is mentioning the four-cylinder engines. We know that modern four cylinders are capable of producing power to rival V8 but what about the sound?
In most cases, four cylinders don’t have any audio qualities, especially since they are mostly installed in economy cars. However, sometimes, four cylinders can provide thundering sounds almost as powerful as race-bred V8. Today, we will present to you 20 best sounding four-cylinder machines worthy putting on your phone as a ringtone.
1. Porsche 356
The predecessor to legendary Porsche 911, the 356 model was the first proper sports car that this iconic company produced. Introduced in 1948 and sold until 1965, Porsche 356 had four-cylinder boxer engine closely related to Volkswagen Beetle and T1 Van engines. However, Porsche tuned this motor to produce much higher output and won numerous races with it. As you can expect, the flat four sounded very angry and aggressive even though it produced modest power compared to later Porsche models.
