Porsche CEO, Matthias Müller, has confirmed the company will launch a diesel-powered Panamera in the second half of 2011.

Mr Müller cited the success of the Cayenne diesel as one of the key reasons for launching the new Panamera variant. While he declined give the engine specifications, it will most likely be the VW Group’s 3.0-liter TDI unit, producing 236 hp with an accompanying 550Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which should give the diesel powered panamera a century sprint figure of a little over seven seconds.

Moving away from the Panamera, Mr Müller also stated that the company is exploring the legal availability of the name “Cajan” for their upcoming entry level cross over, since the Porsche management really liked the name.

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.
