Question 4-cyl Boxster/Cayman

Do these Boxster and Cayman hide a 4-cylinder under their hood? - YouTube

Doesn't sound like a flat6 to me.

Sounds normal (6 cylinder) to me, but I have no idea how you could possibly tell for sure.

My opinion, there is at least one six in there still, but for sure some sound like fairly large displacement fours.

Diesel perhaps?

How about a 3 cylinder

It would be awesome to put one of these in a Boxster with a bad engine and see what you get........88 Pound engine and 400 HP

Nissan builds an 88 pound 3-cylinder engine that makes 400 hp for Le Mans - the Nissan DIG-T | TFLCar.com: Automotive News, Views and ReviewsThe Fast Lane Car: Auto News, Views, and Reviews
