Porsche Cayenne S Diesel: Debut at Paris Motor Show

Porsche Cayenne S Diesel

The Porsche Cayenne S Diesel will see its debut at the Paris Motor Show.

According to Porsche, the Cayenne S will feature the company’s most powerful diesel engine ever. Under its sculpted hood is a turbocharged 4.2-liter V8 with direct injection rated at 382 horsepower and 850 Nm (627 pound feet) of torque. With that power, the Cayenne S Diesel can accelerate from 0-60 in just 5.7 seconds and arrive at a top speed of 157 mph.

The Cayenne S Diesel also incorporates stop/start, which Porsche says makes it the only diesel SUV to do so. The result is a European cycle fuel economy of 8.3 liters per 100 km (that converts to roughly 28 miles per gallon, albeit not on the EPA’s test cycle).
