Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG of Stuttgart is launching its most powerful diesel model on the market as the Cayenne S Diesel. The 4.2-litre eight-cylinder engine with biturbo charging produces 382 hp (281 kW) and offers a maximum torque of 850 Newton metres. The new top diesel completes the sprint from zero to 100 km in 5.7 seconds, and its top speed is 252 km/h. The NEDC fuel consumption of new Cayenne is just 8.3 litres per 100 km (CO2: 218 g/km). One factor contributing to this excellent value is the auto start/stop function; the new model is the world’s only SUV with a diesel V8 to offer this functionality.
The new top diesel model sports silver callipers for more powerful brake system. The black fins at the front end emphasise the open air inlets. The Cayenne S Diesel will be launched in January 2013 and will cost 77,684 euros in Germany – including 19 per cent VAT and country-specific features.
