Porsche axes all diesel variants from line-up

Porsche STOPS building cars with diesel engines

This follows the German automaker's decision to introduce the latest iteration of the Cayenne SUV without a diesel version in its line-up, and its smaller diesel sibling, the Macan S Diesel has been dropped as buyer demands moves towards petrol and hybrid powertrain-equipped models.

That was the writing on the wall, but Porsche has acted far sooner than expected, and you can no longer buy a Macan or a Panamera with a diesel engine.

Sales of the Panamera 4S Diesel ended when the model was updated for 2018, with Porsche saying diesels made up just 15 percent of the car's global sales of 11,000. The new Panamera sedan and soon-to-be-launched Cayenne large SUV are not now offered with diesel power, which may make a return for full-sized models in the future. Porsche does not develop or build diesel engines itself.

"He needs to start more games" - Willian praised for showing against Barcelona
Messi's intervention was a tough pill to swallow for Chelsea , who proved more than a match for Barcelona for much of the evening. But, at the same time, this game must give us a lot of confidence to trust that, in the second leg, qualification is open.

"I also can confirm that we now do not offer a diesel version of the Cayenne or Panamera".

The reason for giving up on diesels is owed to a "cultural shift", as a Porsche spokesman told autocar. In addition, the demand for Porsche diesel models is falling, whereas interest in hybrid models has risen dramatically.

Increasingly strict emissions regulations could hamper the continuation of diesel models in its home market, with the cost of re-engineering diesel units potentially too high to justify its future.

Porsche is reportedly suing Audi, the Volkswagen Group member that supplied the diesel engines that the sports vehicle and SUV brand used for its diesel-engined models, for €200 million ($A314 million) as it tries to recover the cost of the scandal. The original Cayenne was the first modern Porsche to offer diesel power when it went on sale in 2002. Michael Steiner, Porsche's R&D board member, stated electric vehicles should account for a quarter of yearly Porsche sales in 2025.

The results of this electric focus will produce the Mission E next year, while a hybrid version of the 992-generation 911 is also due in 2019.

But the writing has been on the wall for diesel engines at Porsche, and the arrival of the new Cayenne without a diesel option looked to set the future path, as did Porsche's reaction to the defeat device they found lurking in their VW diesels.
