I've always wondered why Seat dropped the Porsche-designed engines when
it became part of VAG. 90hp form 1.5l and 75hp from 1.2l with 2 valves
per cylinder. Sure the guys at Porsche know their job. Also the engines
for Lada Samara were designed by Porsche. In spite of Soviet build
quality, they still are able do do lot of miles without rebuild.
