    • New 2012 Porsche Boxster (981) to get bigger, lighter, and more powerful while also offering 4 cylinder motors

      The third generation Porsche Boxster is set to launch in 2012. CAR magazine reports that the Boxster will gain a 4 cylinder motor which it will not be sharing with the 911. The design of the new 981 Boxster is all new from the ground up, with a more cab forward design. The wheelbase will be about 2 inches longer, height 10 mm lower, and the projected weight is down about 33 pounds to 2904 pounds for the base model. The current 6 cylinder units will be used with slight bumps in power but the real news is a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder that will likely be offered in both turbo and naturally aspirated forms.

        I never liked turbo Porsche's though they are crazy fast.
        Porsche means naturally aspirated not forced induction.

        What do you mean? Some of the greatest Porsches have been turbos.

        I like that Porsche does both and the customer can choose.
