Maybe it's from all the WRX n00bs telling people their car has a boxster engine.

Our car has a flat 4, BOXER engine (You know, like two guys punching each other, you know, like the two cylanders on each side "punching at each other?"

The Porsche BOXSTER (note the S) has a flat 6 (I believe). The vehicle is a ROADSTER that has a BOXER engine, so those geniuses at Porsche called the car the BOXSTER.

So in conclusion, today's lesson:

BOXER (engine) + ROADSTER (body style) = BOXSTER

WRX = "Flat 4" engine configuration, or also known as a "boxer" configuration. The WRX, therefore, DOES have the same engine configuration as the Porsche, albeit a bit smaller. (Although, ironically, making nearly as much power. Of course, we have a turbo on ours )

They're Subaru boxers vs. Porsche boxers. Does it really matter? I mean Porsche and Subaru have worked together on the Liberty B4 RSK and they're still the only two manufacturers of the boxer engine.
Subaru may have been rather late, but also had a 6 cylinder boxer back in the 1988 XT6.
Aside from the horsepower and performance numbers the only difference is Porsche takes it in the back, and Subaru likes it in the front.

A flat engine is not the same a boxer. In a flat engine the cylinders are just parallel to the ground. U can make a vertical boxer. I don't know why u would want to, but u can.

U can have a flat Inline engine..

Lotta permutations from engine jargon.

OK ok ok ok -- you are absolutely correct.

How about "Horizontally opposed, boxer engine" -- does that work ??

Wouldn't it be more like the "two cylanders (sic) on each side 'punching away from each other'?" Unless I've been decieved all this time, and they really are punching at each other!

OK OK OK OK OK OK OK for the last tyme.

I can splell just fine!! I type on the Internet rathir qucikly somtimes and mispell a word evrey now an then. Somtimes my gramer isn't always corect, but when i'm ina hurry, its the first thing too suffer.

please give me unuther chance to redeem myslef.

On a flat-four (or horizontally opposed) engine, there are four cylinders. They are arranged in two banks on opposite sides of the engine. At the end of the compression and exhaust stroke, cylinder number one and three (or two and four) are moving towards each other, in essence, like "punching" one another.

It is true that this example is not entirely correct, if one considers the top of the piston to be metaphorically likened to a "boxers' gloves." However, in my brief and hastily, and somewhat inaccurate explanation earlier in the day, I was referring to the motion of horizontal movement toward the center and likened it to "punching like a boxer."

I now understand where this point of confusion had occurred, and I apologize for any trouble I may have caused.

happy?

hehe!

Pistons are definitely meant to be equated to boxer gloves in this picturesque imagery of a "boxer" engine. It's like two dudes back to back, fending off the mad spell-checker fiends of iclub lore! They're each dishing out devastating 1-2 punches in perfect synchronization!
