The British magazine " Car" now speaks of three different variants with 1.6, 2.0 and 2.5 liters.

Both engines will be offered initially in the Boxster and Cayman sports cars as well as the Cayenne SUV according to the report. The smallest engine of the trio with 157 kW/213 hp, however, could be used in a possible new entry level sports car of the mark or in models of sister companies Audi and VW.
