We saw the end of the Porsche 968 in 1995, as well as the end of Porsche’s four-cylinder engines. At the time, it was claimed that we would never see the four-cylinder engine beneath the bonnet of a Porsche again. But now, according to a Dec. 10 article from Autocar.com, a four-banger is in the works. Even more shocking is the first of Porsche’s lineup to receive the engine won’t be a Boxster, it will be the Macan.
The Macan is the newest small SUV to hit Porsche’s lineup, and already comes with a wide range of engine variants. The models we’ve already been promised range from the Macan S, to the Macan Diesel S and the Macan Turbo, all of which boast a variant of a V6 engine. The newest addition to the SUV’s lineup will offer a lower, unannounced price, and will help Porsche to sell their goal of 50,000 units in 2014.
According to that same article, options for the four-cylinder will be a turbocharged 2.0-Liter producing 280 bhp or a 2.0-Liter turbo-diesel. All variants of the Macan will be direct competitors for other small SUVs, such as the Range Rover Evoque. While engineers from Porsche say the four-cylinder options are under work, there is still no set day or time for when it will arrive in the United States.
