First Diesel Porsche Came To Life – and made us all sick!

It didn’t take long for Porsche from announcing to actually producing its first ever diesel cars.  And the first one just just rolled out of the factory in Leipzig.  What a moment for Porsche! they’ve never been so happy, even when they made Carrera GT! Starting with the Cayenne, the company will almost certainly extend it to the upcoming Panamera as well. The engine in this ‘first’ is a V6 3.0 liter with 240hp and 550nm of torque. Fine, but seems a bit pointless…

You see, diesels are economy minded, specially when horse power figure is low you expect the fuel consumption to be very very low, but in this Porsche engine, while power is pitiful (240hp), fuel economy is nowhere near good as it self-burns more than 11 liter per 100km. Taking into account that it is company claimed number! So, why should one live with a nasty diesel engine, tolerate low power and suffer from bad fuel economy?! specially when it is an ugly car like Cayenne! and the worst part is the price, € 86,500! which is somewhere around $120,000. What the hell are they thinking?! How cocky they are!
