Hot on the heels of the LA unveiling of the new 2013 Cayman coupe, comes news that Porsche is readying a range-topping turbocharged version.

Italian website 0-100 reports that a new 2.5 litre four-cylinder turbo boxer will join the range, sitting above the existing 205kW 2.7 litre and 242kW 3.4 litre naturally-aspirated sixers.

Earlier reports have suggested that Porsche has been developing a new four-cylinder boxer to replace the six cylinder engines later in the model's life cycle, but this latest report suggests it will instead be sold alongside these versions.

These earlier reports also suggested the engine would use two turbos, while 0-100 alludes to only one turbocharger being employed.

Either way, the engine’s output is likely to exceed 260kW/500Nm, pushing performance beyond that of the 242kW Cayman S model.

A naturally aspirated version of the engine is also likely, which could make its way into a price-leading Boxster variant, to fill some of the void left by the indefinitely postponed ‘550’ sub-Boxster roadster project.

Lower capacity four cylinder engines will enable Porsche to improve fuel efficiency and emissions beyond the improvements already extracted from the six-cylinder engines, without necessarily sacrificing performance.

The report adds that the turbocharged four-cylinder coupe will be badged ‘Cayman Turbo’, and be fitted exclusively with Porsche’s dual-clutch PDK transmission.

The Cayman Turbo is being tipped to debut as early as next September’s Frankfurt Motor Show, with a soft-top Boxster version also likely to follow.
