After the diesel version of Cayenne, it is time for Porsche to release a diesel-powered Panamera. The vehicle is scheduled for the second half of 2011.

The expected power unit is 3.0 liter TDI with 240PS (176 kW) and 550Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. It will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which should allow the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in a little over 7 seconds.

Porsche will release more information in the beginning of the next year.
