A new era demands adaptability and Porsche seems to be one versatile car manufacturer as it has entered brand new segments with its newest models which have long forgotten the company’s “tradition”.
Rumors on Porsche starting the development of a new four-cylinder engine are long passed this phase as sources within the company are announcing that the German based automaker has already created the first units. The car manufacturer’s smallest engine will be a 1.6 liter petrol burner. According to the guys from Car Magazine, the unit in question will be producing 210 HP. This will be most likely introduced on the future entry-level sports car, which will slot below the Boxster.
Besides the 1.6 liter engine, the carmaker will also produce a slightly more powerful four-cylinder unit, the 2.0 liter. This will produce 286 HP and will be the mid-range option. The most powerful four-cylinder engine will come in the shape of a 2.5 liter and it will produce up to 360 HP. All units will be turbocharged. Our source is saying that the first models to get these engines will be the Boxster and the Cayman and they will be followed shortly by the Macan.
