Boxster Spy­der to score a six-pot

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

There are some who have never quite come to terms with Porsche’s 718 se­ries switch­ing to tur­bocharged four-cylin­der en­gines. Thank­fully for these lead-footed Lud­dites, Weis­sach has de­cided to squeeze a six-cylin­der en­gine into the bow­els of the lat­est Boxster Spy­der. The flag­ship Boxster is ex­pected to share the same 4.0-litre atmo six – mooted to be a de­tuned ver­sion of the 911 GT3’S pow­er­plant – with the forth­com­ing Cay­man GT4. It’s also believed that the car will be of­fered only as a six-speed man­ual.
