Power to the Chinese

Instead of using a 3.6 liter naturally aspirated V6 engine, the Porsche Cayenne thatís meant for the Chinese market will use a supercharged 3.0 liter V6 powerplant from the Audi S4.

This means that finally, the analystsí prediction of China-destined cars to be better vehicles than those meant for the other parts of the world have come true. Porsche is making this move because of a tax legislation thatís related to the engine capacity of the car. If the 3.6-liter engine is used, this would put the SUV in the 3 to 4 liters category, making it to the 40% tax level. But with the 3.0-liter engine from the S4, the Cayenne would fall under the 3 liter limit, reducing the taxes to 25%. What this ultimately means is that the Chinese customers will receive a more advanced machine but with a higher tax reduction. They get a car that offers enhanced driveability as well as more horsepower and torque.

The supercharged 3.0 liter TFSI V6 unit delivers 333 hp between 5,500 and 7,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 324.5 lb-ft between 2,900 and 5,300 rpm. Meanwhile, the naturally aspirated 3.6 liter engine in the Cayenne has an output of 300 hp at 6,300 rpm and 295 lb-ft at 3,000 rpm. Singapore also has a road tax system that is based on capacity but guess our market is too small to warrant any attention.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
