British media has managed to find out what will power next year's facelifted Porsche Boxster and Cayman duo.

 

Porsche has already announced the mid-cycle revision for the Boxster and Cayman will bring a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and now CAR is providing additional details. The base versions of both models are bound to employ a flat-four 2.0-liter turbo with 240 bhp whereas the hotter S versions will use a 2.5-liter engine delivering 300 bhp. As for the Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS, these will have the same 2.5-liter flat-four turbocharged engine but tweaked to churn 370 bhp.

 

The newly developed flat-four engine is going to come with a single fixed-vane turbocharger, but later on the engineers from Stuttgart are going to implement e-turbo technology to boost power and eliminate turbo lag. The report goes on to specify the beefier Boxster Spyder and Cayman GT4 will live on with the larger 3.8-liter flat-six normally aspirated engine.

Interestingly, CAR mentions that in some markets Porsche plans on positioning the Cayman below the Boxster to increase sales and also broaden the model's awareness.
