Porsche recently introduced new generations of its two most affordable sports models, the Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman. Between other things changed their names, since now is called 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman with the objective of differentiate it more clearly from the range 911. Not all is there, and is that those new sports of the brand German have abandoned them propellants atmospheric of six cylinders.
Both models have resorted to a new mechanical tetracilindrica with supercharging, achieving ones consumption more adjusted and some best benefits to the have of a high figure of torque from low revolutions by min. This, even though in theory a distinct advantage, has not sat well Porsche purists, who have not seen with good eyes the discard of the traditional six atmospheric cylinders.
To our protagonist of today seems that you sat too bad the change of the mythical mark German and has decided take is it justice by his has. Jokes apart, in these pictures we see a Cayman whose drive original has been retired. And not is that have installed a new six cylinder, but it have endowed of a giant V8 with 5 liters of displacement of origin Ford.
In the Bank of power, a Porsche 718 Cayman gave (completely of series) 257 horses to the wheel, while the model prepared with the engine V8 transmitted 424 horses to the wheels. Taking in has that the power of the engine is superior that which came to them wheels, the V8 of 5 litres well would be yielding to the output of the crankshaft ones 460 horses. A quite remarkable increase.
Not should be easy to carry to out a swap of these dimensions. As we see, the motor installed is has located literally behind the seats front. In a circuit will not be as effective as a 911, more than anything by sharing pesos that has due seen out of adjustment, but in a straight line should put complicated things. That Yes, who it drive must do it with ones good plugs for them ears, because of not do it is possible that is is deaf simply with the boot to the not carry insulation any.
