Torque News Porsche reporter Max Larsen reports that Porsche Cayman and Boxster will return to a Flat 6 engine
. And here is what will happen next. That will allow the 78 twins to reach fuller audiences. How?
Quote from the story.
"The return of the Flat Six Engine is going to be fantastic. The 3.0 liter flat 6 from the Carrera gets punched out to 4.0 liters, loses the turbos, and drops into the 718 Cayman/Boxster. Natural aspiration in a car like this is key to enthusiast. A pure driving experience can be tarnished by turbos in some cases as they make controlling revs difficult. The old, dishonorably discharged, flat 4 didn't have much turbo lag at all, but an NA motor will feel so much more engaging for a sports car."
