Porsche Cayenne S Diesel

Porsche is going big with its latest new diesel engine fitted to the Cayenne. A twin-turbo 4.2-litre V8 will sit up front and push out 285kW and a tarmac bludgeoning 850Nm of torque.

With that super diesel in the Cayenne, it will sprint to 100kph in 5.7 seconds but will still return 8.4l/100km and emit just 218g/km of CO2.


To add some sportiness to the diesel model, Porsche have given it PTM (Porsche Traction Management) all-wheel drive. The system means the Cayenne will behave like a rear-wheel drive car right up until the point where you need the front wheels to stabilise or aid in traction.

Also equipped with a 100km tank, the Cayenne should be able to make close to 1200km on a single tank. The new Cayenne S Diesel will be on sale from early next year.


Welcome to my corner of the automotive world! I'm Mandy Lawson, better known as mandla85, and I'm absolutely obsessed with everything related to cars and motorsports. You bet I'm interested if it has four wheels (or sometimes two!) and an engine. For me, cars aren't just a means of transportation; they're a passion, a lifestyle, and an endless source of fascination. I love diving into the world of automotive engineering and design, exploring the latest trends, and uncovering the stories behind the machines. Email / Facebook
