Porsche has just announced the latest version of its sports sedan, the Panamera Diesel. Powered by a 3.0-liter V6 diesel, the engine makes 250-hp from 3800 rpm, with torque of 406 lb-ft from 1750 rpm.
The more important numbers for this car, however, are in the fuel economy department, with Porsche claiming a 1200 km (745 mile) range thanks to a 6.3 l/100 km fuel economy rating, or 37-mpg. That is, however, on the less-strict Euro rating system.
Using Porsche’s 8-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, this diesel machine is no performance slouch though and a sprint to 60 takes a respectable 6.8 seconds.
Priced at 80,183 Euros, Porsche has not indicated it will sell the Panamera Diesel in North America.
