Everyone’s favorite sports car is set to get a bit smaller in it’s next generation, as reports claim that the base engine in the 2012 Porsche 911 will move from its current 3.6L to a more compact 3.4L displacement.
With the Boxster Spyder putting out 320 horsepower from a 3.4L motor, a bump to an output of around 340 horses is not unreasonable, while the Carrera S models get a 3.8L mill putting out just under 400 horsepower. Weight will be reduced by 45 pounds, while the wheelbase is set to grow by about half an inch. The 911 will bow at the Frankfurt auto show in September.
