Seems for reasons that the dealer is not able to explain, I cannot get 4-zone A/C with my 2013 Porsche Cayenne diesel. Pretty clear that it's possible, given the evidence here. But for some reason not in this country. Anybody know why?

good question, maybe it's possible that website posted a euro spec Cayenne?
i know from market to market, car makers tend to add/take away specific things.

have you check on other 2013 cayenne models?

That 2012 in the article has to be a Euro spec, since the first Cayenne diesels in the US will be 2013 models. Mine's coming next month. But the base Cayenne lists 4-zone as an option. I didn't look further, but assume the other gasoline models do as well. I'm trying to figure out why it's only the diesel that gets screwed. One thing that comes to mind is that the diesel fuel tank is 4 gallons bigger than the gasoline models. So perhaps there's not enough room for the rear plumbing and wiring. But that doesn't explain 4-zone in that Euro diesel (unless it has the smaller fuel tank). Other than that, I'm open to suggestion.

I wanted 4-zone, because the dual zone in my 2011 Touareg sometimes seems to have to work too hard. But maybe I'll be lucky, and find that Porsche did something to improve the dual zone

Good point, maybe the way everything has been configured for the diesel Cayenne, there isn't room for a 4-zone climate control. But I never knew Porsche to be a brand that takes away "vital" stuff like this, must be some other reasoning behind it. I'll have to see them in person and ask someone at the dealership. they could have some solid answers.
