Porsche Cayenne Gets Audi Power


A few years ago it was the case that Porsche were just about to acquire Volkswagen. How? Through some very sneaky tactics, however, this all fell through. The end result is now evident with VW completing their acquisition of Porsche last month. How long until parts sharing begins between the two? It has already started…

This is the new Porsche Cayenne S diesel. The motor is a slightly tuned version of Audi’s twin-turbo 4.2 litre unit. Crammed into the front of the latest generation Porsche 4X4 it produces 377BHP as well as an astonishing 626lb-ft of torque. From a standing start to 62MPH it only takes this diesel V8 model 5.7 seconds. Top speed is pegged at 157MPH. We have no doubt that this is simply the beginning of VW sharing its parts bin with Porsche, but the bigger question is, what will VW take from Porsche?
