Think of a Porsche engine, and your mind likely immediately goes to one of the company’s flat-six mills. Whether air or liquid cooled, naturally aspirated or turbocharged, these are the powerplants that the brand remains famous for. However, the company’s engineers have shown impressive skill at developing other engine layouts, too, particularly four cylinders.
These days, buyers can find four-pot mills in the 718 Boxster, 718 Cayman, and Macan. Looking further back in the brand’s history, it’s easy to find even more examples of important Porsches with four pistons pumping.
