Porsche will be adding 4-cylinder engine for Cayman and Boxster

When you pronounce Porsche you think of 6-cylinder engine units. But now the firm is considering a 4-cylinder engine model for the Boxster and the Cayman auto. This decision was taken for reducing the consumption of fuel and emissions with carbon dioxide.

Klaus Berning this announcement; he affirmed that some more economical variants of Cayman and Boxster were coming: 'Clearly there is a trend to downsizing. We have to do everything possible within the brand limits to lower CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions. [A four-cylinder] brings a lot of efficiency, so I will not exclude that, but if you ask me did we already decide one, no'.

This rule is not applied for the 911 line-up just because... '911 is the core of the brand and follows different rules to the rest'.
