The Porsche Cayenne Diesel may have just reached our showrooms, but Porsche has already created a more powerful S model, and they have displayed it in Paris.
The new oil-burner features a larger 4.2-liter diesel V8 with a pair of turbochargers. The new engine makes 382 horsepower and monstrously huge 627 lb/ft of torque. All that power will propel SUV to 62 mph in less than 6 seconds, and carry the Cayenne to a v-max of 157 mph. Of course the biggest advantage of the diesel is its estimated 28 mpg. We want one…badly.
That is where the bad news comes in, as Autoblog is reporting that Porsche officials are denying any US availability. Sound the sad trombone.

Strongest diesel Porsche ever: Cayenne S Diesel with biturbo V8
Porsche is launching the most powerful diesel model in its history in the form of the Cayenne S Diesel. The 4.2-litre eight cylinder engine with biturbo charging outputs 382 hp (281 kW) and offers a maximum torque of 850 Newton metres. This lets the new Cayenne S Diesel attain top values in both dynamic performance and efficiency: The new top diesel completes the sprint from a stop to 100 km in 5.7 seconds, and its top speed is 252 km/h. In the process, it utilises its energy in an exemplary way: Its NEDC fuel consumption is just 8.3 litres per 100 km (CO2: 218 g/km). One factor contributing to this excellent value is the auto start/stop function; the new model is the world’s only SUV with a diesel V8 to offer this functionality.
The Cayenne S Diesel offers a driving experience that is typical of a Porsche and yet is altogether new. It is emotional like a sports car in its dynamic performance and engine sound. The smooth running properties and sound of the eight-cylinder engine reach a level that matches the properties of previous Porsche V8 engines. The Cayenne S Diesel gets its very special character from the PTM active all-wheel drive system. The direct rear-axle drive gives it the driving qualities of a rear-wheel drive vehicle – together with all of the benefits related to handling and precision. The new car also assumes the role of a long-distance champion: based on its NEDC fuel consumption the Cayenne S Diesel – equipped with an optional 100-litre fuel tank – can be driven a distance of about 1,200 km without having to stop to refuel.
