Here’s the latest intel about the new Porsche Boxster including some new details. Have a read!
Most important is an old standby from the Porsche rumor mill that we swear is true this time: The base engine will not be a six-cylinder as in the current car, but a flat-four. Familiar as this forecast may be to the faithful, increasing concern over fuel economy and widespread interest and innovation in engine downsizing make it an ideal time to bring it to fruition. Also, Porsche is reputed to be working on a car to slot below the Boxster, which would create additional need for such an engine. It’s likely to be a shortened version of Porsche’s flat-six rather than an all-new piece.
