Porsche Panamera, Porsche Cayenne: Diesel option coming to US?

Porsche Panamera, Porsche Cayenne

Porsche is considering to bring diesel variants of the Porsche Panamera and the Porsche Cayenne to the US. Good news!

According to a new report, Porsche is working on both a Panamera Diesel and a Panamera S Hybrid and that both cars could be unveiled this March at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. If built, the Panamera Diesel should get the same 240 horsepower 3.0-liter V-6 turbodiesel engine as the Cayenne Diesel, while the Panamera S Hybrid will get the Cayenne S Hybrid’s 380 horsepower V-6 and electric motor hybrid drive system.

The story doesn’t end there as both the Cayenne Diesel and Panamera Diesel are being considered for a U.S. launch. The Panamera S Hybrid is a near certainty given the popularity of hybrid vehicles in the U.S. market.
