Porsche Cayenne (2002 - 2010)

Porsche Cayenne with diesel engine

21 November 2008 - The Executive Board Porsche has given the go-ahead: from February 2009, the sports car manufacturer will offer a Cayenne with a diesel engine. This decision was taken in response to changed legal regulations especially in European markets, resulting in tax incentives for vehicles with diesel engines. Furthermore, Porsche's stake in the Volkswagen Group has opened up new opportunities to utilise diesel technology.

Porsche will equip the Cayenne with a three-litre V6 turbo diesel engine with 240 hp (176 kW) supplied by Audi AG, a subsidiary of the VW Group. The average consumption of the Cayenne Diesel is 9.3 litres per 100 kilometres, with CO2 at 244 grams per kilometre. The torque measures 550 Newton metres. In response to customer demand, the new Cayenne model will initially be offered in Europe. Preparations for market introduction in other countries are underway.
