Porsche Announces Cayenne Diesel and All-New Boxster
Big news just announced at the New York Auto Show: for the first time in the United States, Porsche will offer the Cayenne Diesel beginning with the 2013 model year. The third-generation 2013 Boxster, the first all-new design since its debut in 1996, is also on display at the New York International Auto Show along with the Cayenne Diesel.
The Cayenne Diesel is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine, delivering 240 horsepower and 406 lb. ft. of torque from as low as 1,750 rpm. The result is 0-60 mph acceleration in just 7.2 seconds and a top track speed of 135 mph. The Cayenne Diesel is rated to tow up to 7,716 lbs., can travel up to an estimated 740 miles on a single tank of fuel and is built to meet Tier 2 BIN5 emissions standards using selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. The Cayenne Diesel, the first diesel powered vehicle ever offered by Porsche, was originally introduced to the Diesel-dominated European market in 2009. This same clean diesel technology now comes to the United States, joining the Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo models.
Also making its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show is the completely redesigned, third-generation 2013 Porsche Boxster and Boxster S, first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The 2013 Boxster features more powerful, yet more fuel efficient flat six boxer engines and a longer, lower and wider chassis that helps the new roadster weigh approximately 77 lbs. less than its predecessor. It employs a new fully-electric top, able to be retracted or deployed in nine seconds at speeds up to 31 mph.
