2013 IAA: Porsche Panamera Diesel Facelift shows its skin in Frankfurt [Live Photos]

Article by Christian A., on September 12, 2013

Porsche’s new model – the 2014 Panamera Diesel Facelift – was unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA). Powering the 2014 Panamera Diesel Facelift is the same 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine but it has been redesigned to now offer more power. Several of the moving parts like the crankshaft drive and pistons were totally redesigned.

It also marks the first time for the new V6 to have a water-cooled turbocharger. The new turbine offers better air flow and higher boost pressure of 3 bar (previously 2.5 bar). Because of these, the 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine produces 300 bhp (221 kW) @ 4000 rpm and 650 Nm of torque between 1750 rpm and 2500 rpm.

When compared with the outgoing model, the engine has become more powerful by 50 bhp and 100 Nm of torque. The new 2014 Panamera Diesel Facelift is capable of accelerating to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.0 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 259 km/h or 161 mph.

Even with the increase in power, the fuel consumption stays low at 6.4 litres/100 km, and has CO2 emissions of 169 per km. It has a starting price of EUR 85,300 including VAT in Germany. The new Panamera Diesel will be offered starting in January 2014.
