It's been awhile since we've heard about Russia's Project Cortege / Motorcade but a new report is indicating it will feature a Porsche-designed engine.

Details are limited but Wroom is reporting Porsche Engineering has been selected to develop a new develop turbocharged V12 engine for the project. The engine will reportedly displace between 6.0- and 6.6-liters and have an output of roughly 800 bhp (596 kW).

As we have previously reported, the project calls for the development of a new limo, minivan and SUV for top government officials. The first model is slated to go into production in 2017 and Porsche Engineering has already been selected as the project integrator.
