Belgium special comes with detuned six-cylinder.
We know Porsche is planning to offer a turbocharged flat-four in many of its upcoming new models, including the Boxster/Cayman duo. Although this 211-horsepower variant, unofficially introduced via Porsche Belgium’s website, is not it despite having a suspiciously low output figure. They’ve been rumors a four-pot would arrive with the refreshed model. However, power for this lightweight Boxster comes from a standard 2.7-liter flat-six. So what’s going on here?
There’s every chance that Porsche Belgium has created a detuned variant simply to reduce import taxation, which will be sold exclusively in its home market. Although power is down, the Belgium Boxster still manages to sprint to 62 mph in 6.1 seconds with the PDK box and hit a top speed of 151 mph.
