A flat 6 behind your head. Boxsters are so much fun.

I'd add any of the BMW ///M inline-sixes from the '90s and early '00s. They are just lovely, smooth, rev-happy motors with adequate power from idle onwards. I'd also add any air-cooled inline-four from Honda. I'm biased towards both of those picks of course.
Others that I have enjoyed are early '00s turbo Subarus, air-cooled Porsche flat-sixes, LSx with a lumpy cam, and as stupid as it sounds, 2.0 16v VW inline-four with a nice exhaust and maybe cams. Lovely little engine.
And, possibly my favourite are the early Audi inline-fives. What noise.
I just love the motors in these two. So much so that they were a major reason that I bought them.
Run a V12 Aston Martin into the rev limiter. If that doesnt put a smile on your face, you’ve failed the Turing Test.
Same with the 2.7L MFI engine in the ‘73 Carrera RS.

My next wall sacrifice will have a V8 that accepts God's air without the devil's sorcery. I would like to drive but not necessarily own an N/A 911 as well. Despite having a bunch of Hondas on my resume I think high revving 4 bangers are overrated, even on motorcycles. Give me a triple or V twin making the same power instead.
