Yes, Porsche has finally started importing the diesel Cayenne to the U.S. I've been driving a Chevy HD2500 crew cab with the Duramax Diesel and Allison transmission. I bought the big truck to pull a big trailer, which I needed because I owned 9 bikes, and I'd find myself wanting to haul a bunch of them to a rally or .. I sold 7 of the bikes, meaning I no longer needed the big trailer so I sold it. Doing so meant that I no longer needed the big truck. I'd been looking at VW Touaregs with the 3.0 TDI drivetrain, and after driving one I thought that I'd go ahead and pull the trigger and bring one home. They I could latch onto a smaller trailer, since I only need to haul two bikes. But as hard as I tried, I couldn't put a deal together on a Treg. I drove to Raleigh to look at a '12 Exec model, which was loaded, and which the dealership's owner had been driving for a few months. The car had 4600 miles on it, so I thought I could get a decent discount, and maybe they wouldn't kill me on my trade. No so.. they wanted full MSRP for the car ("But sir, it's never been titled".. "I understand, but it also has 4600 miles on it..") No deal, so I walked. I went across the road to talk to a friend who sells Porsches, and after telling him the story, he said, "Why don't you buy a Porsche?" I wasn't aware that the diesel Cayenne was coming to the states, but he assured me it was - in August (all the VW shenanigans took place in June and July). I told him to give me a call when one came in, that I'd like to drive it. He did, I drove the car and I bought it on the spot. The bottom line with the car is that you don't know you're driving a diesel. The car has 406 lb ft of TQ, and 240 hp.. not a lot by today's standards, but more than enough for a daily driver that might find a trailer being towed behind it on occasion. I've already bumped up against the 30 mpg figure, and that's with less than a thousand miles on the odo. I will likely never own another GM car/truck/whatever. I have personal reasons for feeling that way. I've been a huge fan of Porsches since I wa a kid, and now I'm fortunate enough to own two. Life is good.. it's really good if you bust your ass and work for a living.
