Porsche: New 4-cylinder boxer engine in the works, confirmed!

Porsche 4-cylinder boxer engine

Porsche has confirmed to be working on a new 4-cylinder boxer engine.

Autoweeks reports the new four-cylinder will be based on the current 2012 911’s boxer six, including the same 4.65-inch bore, which hints at a possible displacement of up to 2.66 liters, though with a slightly shorter stroke, both 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter variants are possible.

With the benefit of forced induction and direct injection, the engine could make as much as 380 horsepower, though we expect much tamer, 200-300 horsepower versions to be the norm for the range.
