Porsche today announced it will offer the Cayenne Diesel in the United States market for the first time beginning with the 2013 model year. The third-generation 2013 Boxster, the first all-new design since its debut in 1996, is also on display at the New York International Auto Show along with the Cayenne Diesel.

Cayenne Diesel is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine, delivering 240 horsepower and 406 lb. ft. of torque from as low as 1,750 rpm. The result is 0-60 mph acceleration in just 7.2 seconds and a top track speed of 135 mph

The Cayenne Diesel is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine, delivering 240 horsepower and 406 lb. ft. of torque from as low as 1,750 rpm. The result is 0-60 mph acceleration in just 7.2 seconds and a top track speed of 135 mph. The Cayenne Diesel is rated to tow up to 7,716 lbs., can travel up to an estimated 740 miles on a single tank of fuel and is built to meet Tier 2 BIN5 emissions standards using selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. The newest addition to the Cayenne family will go on sale in September at a base MSRP price of $55,750, not including a $975 destination charge.

The Cayenne Diesel, the first diesel powered vehicle ever offered by Porsche, was originally introduced to the Diesel-dominated European market in 2009. This same clean diesel technology now comes to the United States, joining the Cayenne, Cayenne S, Cayenne S Hybrid and Cayenne Turbo models.

Also making its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show is the completely redesigned, third-generation 2013 Porsche Boxster and Boxster S, first shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The 2013 Boxster features more powerful, yet more fuel efficient flat six boxer engines and a longer, lower and wider chassis that helps the new roadster weigh approximately 77 lbs. less than its predecessor.
