Porsche Diesel

Thanks to stellar sales of their Panamera, Porsche is seriously considering bringing forth diesel varients of the Cayenne SUV and the Panamera sedan over to the United States. Porsche is no stranger to diesels, in fact they’ve been selling a diesel version of the Cayenne over in Europe since early 2009. Currently their is no Panamera diesel, but one is expected to debut at the upcoming Geneva Show in March. Over the last 5 years Americans have finally begun to warm up to the concept of diesel powered automobiles. They’re clean burning, offer good performance and provide consumers with decent fuel economy. In a recent conversation with Automotive News Europe, Bernhard Maier, Porsche’s sales and marketing chief stated that, “We are discussing internally if we should introduce the Cayenne diesel in the U.S. this year. Also a Panamera diesel is an option,”. By all accounts this seems like a good move not only for Porsche, but for U.S. buyers as well, as the popularity for fuel-efficient luxury cars is definitely on the move.

    Diesel is taking over, and I like it. Well, perhaps taking over is too bold a statement, but it’s becoming much bigger.
