At first glance, this prototype of the 2011 Porsche Boxster looked like it might be an early prototype for a low-slung Speedster model. But after taking a closer look and noting that this test mule has a standard-height windshield, our suspicions turned toward another possibility — four-cylinder power.
Yes, that’s right, Porsche is considering a four-cylinder power plant for the next-generation Boxster. Ever-tightening fuel and emissions standards mean that even Porsche must start considering its fleet average if it wants to sell mid-priced sports cars without huge gas-guzzler taxes.
