Porsche Panamera to have diesel power in the 2nd half of 2011

by Alex

The second half of 2011 awaits the release of one of the most awaited cars of the upcoming year, the diesel powered Panamera from Porsche. The CEO of Porsche Matthias Müller has confirmed the release while speaking with Westfalen-Blatt from Germany. Porsche is riding on the success of the Cayenne diesel car, which has inspired Muller to come up with the brand new Panamera diesel model. The engine on which the car will be running on has not been disclosed yet by Porsche but it is assumed that it will be based on a 3.0-liter TDI engine with power of 176 kW (240 PS / 236 hp) providing a maximum torque of 550 Nm (406 lb-ft). The car will have an eight speed automated transmission system. The car has the capability of rushing from rest to 100 kph in a matter of about seven seconds, which is quite a performance for a diesel car. Muller further stated that they have developed a liking for this name of the model and are now gathering information on the fact whether christening the car by this name would be legal.
