Not enough cylinders in your 718 Boxster? Maybe this is the new AMG SLC's moment..



Fury, outrage and pure disgust are just some of the ways PHers have reacted to Porsche slicing two cylinders and nearly a third of cubic capacity off the Boxster's flat-six engine. Sure, it's gained a fancy turbo and a bunch more mid-range but, even with a sports exhaust, that seemingly isn't enough to drown the howls of protest. Odd then there's been barely a whimper at Mercedes-AMG killing off its last naturally-aspirated V8 and replacing with a twin-turbo V6.

Best statement in the article:

"If it was us, we'd get a move on and make an offer on the outgoing SLK55. It may be flawed and a little less capable but - in a familiar pattern - the madness and charisma of a huge normally-aspirated V8 in a small roadster is something we'll all miss."
