From February 2009, Porsche will offer a Cayenne with a diesel engine in europe, thus extending its range of engines for the four-door, all-wheel drive SUV once again. This decision was taken in response to new regulations, especially in European markets, resulting in tax incentives for vehicles with diesel engines. Furthermore, the Porsche stake in Volkswagen Group, the world's largest manufacturer of modern diesel engines for passenger cars, has opened new opportunities to utilize sporty diesel technology.

Porsche will equip the Cayenne with a 3.0 liter V6 turbo-diesel engine with 240hp supplied by Audi AG, a subsidiary of the VW Group. The average consumption of the Cayenne Diesel is 30.4mpg Combined.

The spontaneous throttle response and high torque characteristics of this diesel engine deliver the required performance levels for an athletic all-terrain vehicle such as the Cayenne. The substantial maximum torque of 405 lb-ft complements the sports-oriented chassis.

In response to customer demand, the new Cayenne model will initially be offered in Europe. Preparations for market introduction in other countries are underway.

The Porsche Executive Board is confident it will maintain the long term market success of the Cayenne with the low-consumption V6 turbo-diesel. In the last financial year 2007/08, 45478 Cayennes (which currently incorporates five different models) were sold - more than ever before.

With the introduction of the Cayenne Diesel, Porsche is continuing its commitment to reducing fuel consumption. The manufacturer is also working on another Cayenne variant with hybrid drive that will exceed 31mpg, and which will be launched onto the market at the end of the decade.
