Four cylinder engines are coming back to Porsche lineup. According to rumors which broke this weekend, Porsche is working on three new turbocharged F-4 engines, which will make their debut in the next-generation Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman.


Porsche's three new four-cylinder engines are a 1.6-liter turbocharged F-4 producing 210 hp, a 2.0-liter turbocharged F-4 making 286 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, and a 2.5-liter turbocharged F-4 putting down 360 hp and 347 lb-ft of torque. The 2.0- and 2.5-liter engines are reportedly destined for the next-gen Boxster and Cayman, while the 1.6-liter engine was originally developed for the now-canceled Porsche 551 "baby Boxster."

For today's Thread of the Day, we want to know what you think of Porsche's new four-cylinder engines. More specifically, could you see yourself buying a four-cylinder Porsche? This is far from the first time Porsche sold a car powered by a four-pot; in the 1960s and '70s, Porsche sold the 912, which was a 911 with a F-4, while cars like the Porsche 944 also had four-cylinder power.

Would you buy a four-cylinder-powered Porsche? Which cars should Porsche put the new flat-4 engines in? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
