2009 Porsche Cayenne Diesel – Click above for high-res image gallery

Audi and Volkswagen are working hard to push diesel products in the United States and it seems as though their corporate cousins at Porsche may be ready to join them. Rumor has it that the German automaker is considering a pair of oil-burners for our shores.

Porsche already produces a diesel-drinking Cayenne for Europe and it's been speculated that a Panamera diesel will appear on stage at the Geneva Motor Show. While the move will surely offend the Porsche purists in the States, it's a safe bet that diesel options will help lower the automakers average fuel economy figures – a problem Porsche has been dealing with for years.
