Porsche has unveiled a more powerful version of the 2014 Panamera Diesel, ahead of its public debut which will be made next week, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The German based automaker Porsche has recently pulled the wraps off a more powerful version of the 2014 Panamera Diesel. The model in question is still getting the 3.0 liter V6 diesel engine under its hood, but thanks to some tweaks, the total output produced now stands at 300 HP (224 kW) at 4,000 rpm and 650 Nm of torque (479 lb-ft), available between 1,750 rpm and 2,500 rpm. This represents 50 HP (37 kW) and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) of torque more than what the standard car has to offer.
According to the car manufacturer, the 2014 Porsche Panamera Diesel can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6 seconds, 0.8 seconds faster than its predecessor, and it can now reach a top speed of 259 km/h (161 mph), compared to the previous 244 km/h (152 mph). The towing capacity of the model has been lifted by 100 kg to 2,600 kg. The average fuel consumption stands at 6.4L / 100km (44.1 mpg UK / 36.7 mpg US) and the CO2 emissions stop at 169 g/km. Prices for the model in Germany will stand at 85,300 EUR, VAT included, once it will replace the old model from January, 2014.
