I very much doubt Porsche will use the VW/Audi I-4 2.0 lump. If they do launch a four-cylinder turbo Boxster, I would expect it use a flat-four derived from the flat-six engine family.

As for the TDI engines, I would say the chances of that happening any time soon are slim to none. Much more likely for the medium term is a petrol-electric hybrid model.

The idea of any turbo engine in the Boxster is a turn off if you ask me. But the TDI V6? That would be utterly ghastly. The power delivery is all wrong.
