Details about the new Porsche flat-four

// Posted in Porsche

981 Porsche Boxster

The new flat-four cylinder engine from Porsche will underpin a variety of models and will come in three different engine capacities, Car magazine reports. All will feature direct injection and have turbochargers to achieve the peak power Porsche demands.

Kicking off the flat-four family will be a 1.6 litre engine producing 210hp (155kW), followed by a 2.0 litre offering 286hp (210kW) and topping the range will be a 360hp (265kW) 2.5 litre.

The 2.0 litre and 2.5 litre engines are expected to find their way into the next-gen Boxster and Cayman, as well as the Cayenne. We reckon the Macan should be on that list too.

It’s not clear at this stage what purpose the 1.6 litre has, although it could be earmakred for use in Volkswagen/Audi products such as the on-again, off-again Audi R4 and associated acts.
