The main attraction in Porsche’s booth at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show will definitely be the new generation of the 911, also known as the 991, but its bigger brother, the Panamera, will also be presented at the German event, with a new diesel engine.
Being by far the most efficient version of the Panamera in terms of fuel economy, the 3.0 liter Audi-made engine is delivering 250 horsepower and has 550 Nm of torque, accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds and hitting a top speed of 242 km/h.
Nothing unusual until now but Panamera Diesel comes forward when talking about its fuel economy, burning only 6.5 liters per 100 kilometers in an average cycle, and emitting 172g of CO2 / km. Fitting the Panamera Diesel with special tires and the average fuel consumption will go down at 6.3l/100km and the car will emit 167g of CO2/km.
Impressive figures when we think that the Panamera Diesel is priced close to 100.000 euros. The new version of the Panamera will be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, even if it’s already available for order in most European countries.
