Porsche Cayenne Diesel
In February 2009, Porsche adds the Cayenne Diesel to the SUV model range. After 61 years of producing sports cars, the sporty offroader is the first Porsche car with a compression ignition engine. Porsche has fine-tuned the VW group’s three-litre turbo diesel in every aspect – right down to the engine sound. With a torque of 550 Newton metres, the Cayenne Diesel is only surpassed by the Cayenne Turbo and the Cayenne Turbo S. Like all Cayenne, the Cayenne Diesel features the intelligent all-wheel-drive system Porsche Traction Management. The six-speed Tiptronic S comes as standard, as does the “Sport Button” which alters the throttle response and transmission characteristics. The Cayenne Diesel not only impresses with its performance on and off road but also with its range of up to 1,000 kilometres. On March 6, 2009, the 250,000th Cayenne leaves the Porsche factory at Leipzig – it’s a diesel.
