To protect the environment, we offer sophisticated technical solutions that mean a Porsche can be driven with a greater proportion of alternative fuel. And yet remain a Porsche.
All of our cars will comply with the strict requirements of the EURO 5 emissions standards well before they come into effect. Already, all Porsche engines can be fuelled with a blend of 10 per cent ethanol and, in fact, the Cayenne –suitable for driving almost anywhere on the planet – can use up to 25 per cent biofuel (ethanol), depending on the country. Our racing engines also use biofuel. The high-performance power unit on the RS Spyder, for example, is designed for a 10 per cent ethanol blend and takes Porsche from victory to victory in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS).
What is more, we are working on a flexible fuel vehicle (FFV) at our development centre in Weissach that can run on a blend of 85 per cent ethanol, as well as petrol.
Fuel consumption/emissions* of the Cayenne models: Urban in l/100 km 15,8 l/100 km-8,4 l/100 km; Extra urban in l/100 km 8,4 l/100 km-6,5 l/100 km; Combined in l/100 km 11,5 l/100 km-7,2 l/100 km; CO2 emissions in g/km 270 g-189 g.
* These data were obtained using the Euro 5 measurement method (715/2007/EC and 692/2008/EC) in the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) with standard equipment. The information does not refer to an individual vehicle and is not part of the offer, but is simply provided so that comparisons can be made between different types of vehicle. Further, up to date information on the individual vehicles can be obtained from your Porsche Centre.
Consumption figures were obtained on the basis of standard equipment. Special equipment may affect consumption and performance.
