    Diesel Porsche

    With the Megga high running cost of all cars let alone a Porsche Cayenne 4x4, Porsche have decided to fit a Diesel Engine in their Cayenne.
    They are looking at the VW Touareg's 3.0 litre V6 diesel, and the mighty V12 diesel from the planned Audi R8.
    A Porsche diesel, it had to happen sooner or later, or i suppose that they would never sell any.

    I also didn't think I would see a 4x4 Porsche, or a Jag diesel/estate. They have to move with the times I suppose.

    Hardly surprising as Porsche started out as glorified VW's and seem to have now gone full circle
