Is Porsche About To Start Making A Turbo Four Cylinder?

Illustration for article titled Is Porsche About To Start Making A Turbo Four Cylinder?

Porsche hasn't had a four cylinder engine in ages. Is that all about about to change?

The Porsche nuts over at Flat-6 News have reason to believe that the boxer sixes in the Boxster and Cayman are on the way out, to be replaced with a four-cylinder version of the 3.8 liter DFI flat-six in the 911.

Supposedly the little four banger will be 2.5 liters, turbocharged, and crank out around 350 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque. That means it would make more power than the engines in the Cayman S and Boxster S. That's a good thing.

Flat-6 News also says that a naturally aspirated version of the engine will be in a sub-Boxster performance car.

As always, take these rumors with numerous grains of salt.

Can't wait to hear the Porsche fanatics explain us how every car that will have this engine "isn't a real Porsche". (Because everyone knows the very first Porsche was a 6-cylinder 911).
