Based the flat-six

A new report is revealing details about Porsche's four-cylinder engine.

According to Autoweek, the new boxer engine will be based on the company's six-cylinder engine and feature a light-pressure turbocharger as well as direct injection. Two versions are reportedly being created with displacements of 2.0- and 2.5-liters. The latter variant is expected to have a maximum output of 380 hp (283 kW / 385 PS).

As we have previously reported, the engine is being built for the upcoming entry-level roadster and could see use in the next-generation Boxster and Cayman.

...Subaru? C'mon Guys, pleeease! Next you will be saying they invented the bloody thing. Real Boxer engines are only the domain (particularly nowadays) of Porsche! Step away from the keyboards kids, step away.

Good news for us budget sensitive sports buyers. And just in time when I will be thinking of changing my GT with another small but powerful toy.

If I was head of porsche I would just buy the Subaru EJ25T and stick that in the Boxter. Boom!!! just saved 400 Million in R&D costs.

The whole Porsche thing started with 4 cylinders. Back to the roots? as longs as it is a performance benchmark (in its segment) i am fine with that.
