Porsche is Developing a New 4-Cyl Boxer Engine

Porsche is reportedly working on a new 4-cylinder boxer engine that will be used in the Boxster, Cayman, a new smaller roadster and maybe even the 911.

Outgoing head of R&D Wolfgang Durheimer recently confirmed at the Detroit Auto Show that Porsche is working on the new engine. Originally there were plans for Porsche to introduce a new four-cylinder in the upcoming small roadster, which shares parts with the VW Bluesport and a sister car from Audi. But now it looks like Porsche is going to be using its own engine in the baby roadster.

According to sources, the engine is a 2.5L and the turbocharged version puts out around 360-hp.
