Porsche to Decide on Diesel Models for U.S. Market 'Soon'

Porsche continues to debate whether it will sell diesel models in the U.S. According to recent reports, if the go-ahead is given, diesel models would not only include the Cayenne SUV, but also the new Panamera sedan.

An announcement could come as early as this March, when Porsche will debut the Panamera Hybrid and Diesel at the Geneva Auto Show.

Stating that the German sports car maker is preparing to make a final decision soon, Porsche marketing boss Bernhard Maier 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."

Currently Porsche offers the Cayenne Diesel in Europe with a 3.0-liter V6 with 240-hp and a 0-62 mph time of 7.8 seconds thanks to an 8-speed auto-box. The Panamera Diesel would be offered with a similar powerplant. The Cayenne S Hybrid is sold in Europe, North America and other markets. It is powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 engine mated to a 47-hp electric motor, making 380-hp and 427 lb-ft of torque
