Flat Style Engine (Like Porsche and Subaru)

Was wondering if Automation would be seeing flat style engines? Like Porsche 911's flat 6's or Subaru's flat 4's. Maybe even like the flat 12's old ferrari's had. The fitment for the engine bay would be different (being shorter but wider). Flat engines provide lower cog so it wouldn't be similar to any of the existing engine layout currently available. Adding a different engine layout would bring tons up creativity up. Lets be honest here, the engine creation is the heart of this game.

Just to add something completely unnecessary :ugeek:
A flat engine is not the same as a boxer engine.
AFAIK flat engines will not be in the game, but boxer will be.

To further simplify it, the old Ferrari engines (eg. the Testarossa engine) is a 180 degree flatplane V8.

Flat V12, not V8.
