The Boxster and 996 have very similar engine designs but the Boxster S engine makes approximately 78 hp/liter while the 996 makes approximately 88 hp/liter. The compression ratio is slightly higher in the 996 application. What else is different? I realize that Porsche wants the Carerra to be more powerful for marketing reasons. My question is what is different from an engineering perspective?
