2012 Porsche Panamera Diesel Unveiled
The diesel-powered Panamera is powered by a 3.0L turbodiesel V6 that puts out 250 horsepower and 406 lb-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed Tiptronic transmission that sends the power to the rear wheels. It reaches 0-62 mph in 6.8 seconds and has a top speed of 150 mph. Porsche claims that the Panamera diesel will get 43.5 mpg on the European cycle, which will allow it to travel up to 745 miles on a single tank.
The model will come standard with Porsche's Active Suspension Management system, front and rear park assist, bi-xenon headlights and a navigation system. The only way that buyers will really be able to differentiate the diesel powered model from the other Panamera versions will be the "diesel" badging on the front doors.
Pricing is set to start at £62,134 in the UK.
