The change of name for the smaller units of the family Porsche will involve a change important mechanical, something that we already knew. The Porsche 718 Boxster and Porsche 718 Cayman will replace its six-cylinder engines for the other four with turbocharging, showing a output power close to 300 HP.
The new Cayman and Boxster will bring multiple mechanical changes
Currently, Boxster and Cayman share mechanical, although the coupe is always able to show a power of 10 horses superior to that of his twin roadster. Nothing indicates that the new strategy is not so, being the Cayman most powerful in all versions, so that Porsche can sell it at a slightly higher price.
As we have already said, the engine will suffer a radical change. They will lose two of its six cylinders, and the cubicaje will be reduced and offset by the arrival of a single turbocharger. In all the cases. This means that will gain power with respect to the existing models, whose versions of access are located at 265 and 275 horses.
According to AutoExpress, the new minimum wattage would be 300 hp with 350 Nm of torque. All this is extracted from a four-cylinder turbo two-liter of cubicaje. To be certain this information, means that the rest of versions, such as the S and GTS will also increase their performance figures, and can reach 360 HP.
The Boxster will still be slightly less powerful than its brother hard top
In this case, the engine must change. If not it will do so in terms of the number of cylinders, there will always be four, yes that will do it in the front. According to early estimates, the more powerful units will have 2.5 liters of cubicaje, together with the variable geometry turbo of the new Porsche 911 has also become supercharged.
For your position to expand these figures to improve the performance data. Currently, the Boxster and Cayman access employ almost six seconds to go from 0 to 100 Km/h. With the new changes, this time would fall around six tenths. Still more striking is the case of versions higher than would do so below the mark of five seconds.
soon we should know in detail how will the new Porsche 718 Boxster and Porsche 718 Cayman. The test units we have seen at different times, both the Cayman as the Boxster show a almost definitive, and will surely be filed in the first quarter of next year, to make its first appearance at the Geneva motor show 2016.
