Win a Porsche! The incredible Porsche 718 Boxster GTS could be yours next week!
When in 2016, Porsche bowed to increasing environmental pressures and installed a new flat-4 cylinder turbocharged engine in the 718 Boxster, a lot of Porsche purists were up in arms about it, not least because the soundtrack the 4-pot motors provided just wasn’t very nice or exciting.
Then the new Cayman GT4 came out with a 4.0 litre naturally aspirated flat-six motor and the purists were happy – but they were (and still are) incredibly hard to get hold of.
So basically, Porsche listened and have replaced the 2.5 litre flat-four turbo in the Boxster GTS with a detuned version of that GT4 engine, producing 395bhp and the same 420Nm of torque.
Performance is improved slightly, the price is a bit higher and it drinks a bit more fuel, but finally you can order a new Boxster and have a sweet flat-six singing away behind your head in one of the best mid-engined chassis Porsche has ever made. Rejoice!
