The new 718 Boxster and Cayman models lose the wonderful naturally aspirated flat-six, but gain a pretty gnarly turbocharged boxer four. That means more power at a lower price. The configurator is up for both models; what does yours look like?
When I first heard that Porsche was developing their first new production flat-four engine since the 356 era, I was understandably and visibly aroused.
