Next-gen Porsche Boxster and Cayman to get 4-cylinder engines

The future generations of the Porsche Boxster and the Cayman will be getting a four-cylinder boxer engine under their hoods, as the company has recently announced.

The upcoming Porsche Boxster and Cayman will be getting a significant change for the new generation as the company will be adding a four-cylinder boxer engine on them, for the first time in history. The announcement has been made by Matthias Muller, the Porsche CEO, in a recent interview with Auto Motor und Sport. The executive said that the two models mentioned above will get the four-cylinder units just like the 919 Hybrid endurance racer.

Unlike the racing car, which has a V4 2.0 liter four-cylinder unit, the new Boxster and the Cayman will be getting a 180-degree horizontally opposed layout engine. According to Matthias Muller, the new engine will produce up to 396 HP and this means that it will be more powerful than the 3.4 liter six-cylinder boxer unit, currently available for the two models, which has 326 HP and 335 HP in the Boxster and the Cayman GTS. More details on the future generations of the Boxster and the Cayman, with their new engine, are limited for the moment.
