Agree with the edit. The V10 diesel was VW donation to dumb moves

This is the engine that Porsche should equip in the North American Cayenne TDI from the outset, completely bypassing the 240 HP V6. Otherwise, apart from the nameplate there's nothing of substance to differentiate it from the Touareg and Q7.

Well, the petrol V8s are their own, although the non-turbo version isn't really any more impressive than the T'reg's 4.2L to be honest. And the Cayenne isn't all that nice to drive anyways. If I had that much money to spend on a Porsche, it certainly wouldn't be a dolled up T'reg, that's for sure! But the brand means a lot to some folks.

Porsche has unveiled its most powerful Cayenne to date – and the surprising news is that the potent, upmarket SUV is driven by a reengineered diesel powerplant.

The Porsche Cayenne S Diesel, which will go on sale in most European markets early next year, benefits from a new 4.2-liter twinturbo V8 generating 382ps and 850Nm of power. The engine is a slightly detuned version from the one found in the Audi A8 range and it will sit above the current 3-liter diesel offering in the Cayenne lineup.

However, such massive torque output means that the S Diesel can sprint from 0-62mph in 5.7 seconds, and achieve a top speed of 157mph. Porsche says the latest addition to the Cayenne family offers fuel consumption of 34mpg on the NEDC and emissions of 218 g/km CO2. Aiding efficiency further is the use of an auto start/stop function, with Cayenne S Diesel being the world’s only V8 diesel SUV to offer such a technology.

Cayenne S Diesel will benefit from the Porsche Traction Management active all-wheel drive system, which delivers the dynamic qualities of a rear-wheel drive car, together with its inherent benefits in terms of handling and precision. Torque is directed to the front wheels precisely and according to the driving situation to improve stability and traction. The Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus package will also be made available as an added option.

Right. Porsche in Europe has done what should have been done from the beginning, while the North American subsidiary still has its HUA.

Wanna see a Nürburgring lap in a red Porsche diesel driven by Walter Röhrl himself?

It would cost a bunch of money to certify the V8 TDI for just 1 application. Fuel economy wouldn't be as impressive either, dropping down to something like 17/25 on the EPA test making it a tougher sell at nearly 70,000 starting point than the cheaper V6 TDI. From what I have read Porsche sells either mostly base Cayennes or the Turbos with the middle V8s not being too popular and the V8 TDI would fall into the middle that no one likes.

Earlier reports said that the A8 would get a 400+ hp version of the updated V8 TDI engine, somewhat of a letdown that it is only good for 380 unless Audi is saving a higher power version for itself?

There are no "passes" that let one certified vehicle apply to others from the group with the same engine. Each model and engine/powertrain combination would need to be certified separately just the same.

The added cost to the company is in training and logistics of stocking spare parts. The certification argument is a canard.

It could also be that the 380 is only twin turbo, without any compound setup or anything crazy like that.

I could easily see a single small turbo, two big turbos setup, or a two tiny turbos, one huge turbo setup working well on that engine.

In any case, what about sharing certification costs between models that are the same, across brands? For instance, can the Touareg and Cayenne share any certification costs, being the same vehicle?
