Porsche dealers in Europe have extended the Panamera range with an all-new diesel model.

The Porsche Panamera Diesel clearly isn't the fastest in the Panamera lineup. In fact it's the slowest. But it's by far the most practical for day-to-day use.

The 3.0 litre V6 engine puts out 250 horsepower (184 kW) from 3,800 rpm to 4,400 rpm. While the maximum torque output of 550 Nm (405 lb-ft) is available all the way from 1,750 rpm to 2,750 rpm. The engine is coupled to an 8-speed Tiptronic S transmission, and working together they can take the Diesel Panamera up to 62 mph (100km/h) in 6.8 seconds, and on to a 150 mph top speed.

One of the biggest selling points to the Porsche Panamera Diesel is the engine's fuel economy and the car's massive 745 mile range on a full 80-litre tank. With the optional lower rolling resistance tires fitted, the Panamera Diesel emits just 167 g/km and offers 44.8mpg.

In order to achieve such frugal performance, the engine utilizes a range of high-tech features, including common rail direct injection through piezo valves at a pressure of 2000 bar, electrically controlled variable geometry turbochargers, and an emission control system which uses gas recirculation, an oxidation catalyst and particle filter.

Pretty much the only identifying feature of the Porsche Panamera Diesel - without looking in the engine bay - are small 'Diesel' badges mounted just aft of the front wheel arch.

External review by Dave Bla
The Panamera is a car that in my opinion serves little purpose in context to the auto group, and only distracts from the purpose of the brand.

Porsche is a high performance brand within a larger auto group. Other brands within this group have a better Identity as a Luxury car Manufacturer.

With the introduction of a Diesel powered sedan, I feel that the company is getting even farther off the path.
