Porsche confirms four-cylinder turbo engine for Boxster, Cayman

Porsche will introduce a turbocharged four-cylinder engine on the next-generation Boxster and Cayman sports cars, said the company’s CEO Matthias Müller.

The executive told German magazine Auto Motor und Sport that Porsche road cars would follow the lead of the 919 Hybrid race car in receiving four-cylinder engines.

However, while the 919 Hybrid features a V4 engine, the powerplant for the Boxster and Cayman will have a 180-degree horizontally opposed layout as part of a modular engine strategy.

“We will continue with the downsizing strategy and develop a new four-cylinder boxer engine which will see service in the next-generation Boxster and Cayman. We will not separate ourselves from efforts to reduce CO2,” Müller said. When asked about the output of the new four-cylinder boxer engine, he said it would produce up to 400 PS (395 hp).

The most powerful engine in the Boxster and Cayman lineup at the moment is the naturally aspirated 3.4-liter six-cylinder boxer, which produces 325 hp in the Boxster GTS and 335 hp in the Cayman GTS.
