Boasting outstanding performance, efficiency and the typical range of a diesel unit, the Cayenne Diesel Platinum Edition is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel engine. The turbocharger features Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG). The incoming exhaust gases drive a set of electronically variable turbine blades whose angle is continuously adjusted to ensure optimum performance under all engine loads.
The result: an output of 180 kW (245 hp) and maximum torque of 550 Nm. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.6 seconds. Maximum torque is available between 1,750 and 2,750 rpm. Top speed is 220 km/h (136 mph). Proof that a 100-metre sprinter can also run a marathon.
To make sure that the fascinating appeal of Porsche lasts, a 100-litre fuel tank is available as a no-cost option. This increases the range to well over 1,000 km (620 miles) on the Diesel model.
