The Cayenne S Diesel will make it's debut at the 2012 Paris Expo later this month!

I will be posting information about the Cayenne S Diesel here leading up to the debut and even days after. Feel free to add whatever you find :)


Location: Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles, Paris, France
When: September 27-28, 2012

For any of our European readers who like the Cayenne Diesel but who have been holding out for a higher-power formula, good news has arrived. Porsche has confirmed earlier rumors by announcing that a more powerful diesel version of its Cayenne SUV will debut at the Paris Motor Show later this month.

According to Porsche, the Cayenne S will feature the company's most powerful diesel engine ever. Under its sculpted hood is a turbocharged 4.2-liter V8 with direct injection rated at 382 horsepower and 850 Nm (627 pound feet) of torque. With that power, the Cayenne S Diesel can accelerate from 0-60 in just 5.7 seconds and arrive at a top speed of 157 mph.

The Cayenne S Diesel also incorporates stop/start, which Porsche says makes it the only diesel SUV to do so. The result is a European cycle fuel economy of 8.3 liters per 100 km (that converts to roughly 28 miles per gallon, albeit not on the EPA's test cycle).

This news comes on the same day as the release of the video below, which celebrates a less-powerful diesel Cayenne. The U.S. version of the Porsche Cayenne Diesel (note the lack of an "S" designation), debuted at the New York Auto Show back in April featuring a 3.0-liter V6. That engine makes 240 horsepower and 406 pound feet of torque and carries a base MSRP of $55,750, whereas the not-for-North-America V8 diesel rings up at €77,684 – about $100k.
