Porsche Cayman with 4-cylinder engine might come in 2013 image

The German based automaker Porsche is planning to develop a four-cylinder turbocharged engine of the new Cayman generation, which might hit the market sometimes next year.

Downsizing seems to be everything these days and after the new generation of the Porsche Cayman has been officially presented to the public during the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, the model is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with a rumor which is saying that the sports car might get a four-cylinder turbocharged version sometimes next year. Rumors are saying that this variant is expected to be unveiled during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, when the automaker will celebrate 50 years of the 911.

The upcoming version of the Porsche Cayman is expected to get a 2.5 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine under its hood, which will produce a total output of 350 HP and it will have a peak torque of 500 Nm (369 lb-ft). The model won’t be offered as an entry-level because it will be more powerful and with an increased performance when compared to the outgoing versions. Additional details on this subject will probably be announced close to its debut next year.
