What Porsche has taken away in displacement and cylinders, it’s given back with more power and more torque. The base 2.0-litre 718 Boxster puts out 296bhp and 280lb ft of torque, representing a 25bhp and 66lb ft increase over the old 2.7-litre six.
It's a flat-four - so it will at least sound a little more interesting than an inline-four - and is powered by a single, variable geometry turbocharger.
