Video: this is the new 718 Boxster, a Porsche with four-cylinder engine

Until they not try him, we will not be able to tell you that we would be sorry to more, if the disappearance of its boxer engine six-cylinder, or the fact that it’s not going to be atmospheric. Climb down off of one of the best Porsche ever made, the Porsche Cayman GT4, to turn up in the new Porsche 718 Boxster can be a drama. We are convinced that we will miss your boxer engine naturally aspirated six-cylinder, as in his day many they missed the air cooled. But to what extent what we will miss? For the moment, let us see it, and escuch√©moslo, to go making us an idea of how will sound the new Porsche Boxster with a boxer engine, turbo, four-cylinder engine.

The new Porsche 718 Boxster leaves the boxer naturally aspirated six-cylinder for a brand new boxer four-cylinder engine, also shared with the Porsche 718 Cayman.

The Porsche 718 Boxster is a completely new model, a new generation, which as you can see in these images maintains its essence is aesthetic, and has completely revised some of its traits, such as the integration of the defence.

The new Boxster will be launched in two flavors, two engines of four cylinders and a displacement of 2 liters and 2.5 liters, and power outputs of 300 and 350 HP, respectively. That being said, with two cylinders less, we have a sport that consumes less fuel, is more powerful and, above all, it pushes with more force in all the revs. With which we sense that inevitably will be fast, much faster than up to now.

Although the fidelity of a promotional video, well edited, is questionable at the time of issuing a verdict about their sound, it seems they do not lack personality. A Porsche that doesn’t sound like a Porsche it would not make sense.

we will Wait to try to make that verdict, check if there is a decibel enough to satisfy our cravings for the throttle (for sure), if the sound you will enjoy just as much character as the boxer six-cylinder used so far (we have a lot of doubts), and if the new line of escape there will be a lawyer, like many other sports we’ve tested recently, the backfiring forced to compensate for the loss of character of the passage of an atmospheric to a turbo.
