German sports car maker Porsche has been complaining bitterly about the proposed European Union carbon dioxide emissions standards for cars. After all, Porsche exclusively builds high-powered sports cars and overweight SUVs. However none of that means that Porsche is sitting on their hands while new rules are being debated. For some time now they have been working on a parallel hybrid power-train for the Cayenne SUV that will also go into its platform mates the VW Touareg and Audi Q7 as well as the upcoming Panamera sedan. Porsche demonstrated the Cayenne Hybrid to some European press this summer, but we'll be getting our look at it this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Stay tuned for more on this one.
