Diesel Porsche Cayenne in 2010!

With the latest oil crisis and prices of everything increasing (and not stopping either), car manufacturers are forced to be more creative.

The good news is that Porsche Cayenne might be coming with a hybrid engine by 2010, all with a diesel engine while horsepower and torque remain the same.

I think I’d be looking really forward to a vegetable oil Porsche Cayenne. (Or at least they will have DIY kits for people who want to convert it)

Various news outlets have speculated that Porsche’s first-ever diesel engine would be in
