A Porsche Cayenne Diesel Is The Killer Deal You've Been Waiting For

Sales

Slight catch, but no biggie.

The aftereffects of Dieselgate are still haunting Volkswagen somewhat, but the German automaker is rapidly moving on and working hard to rejuvenate its reputation. According to Automotive News, however, there are still a few issues to resolve, such as 1,300-1,500 unsold Porsche Cayenne diesels in the US. In fact, they’ve been sitting for more than a year collecting dust because of a stop-sale order until regulators approve VW’s 3.0-liter diesel fix.

But here’s the problem Porsche faces once that fix is approved: those Cayennes can’t be sold as new because, well, they’re not anymore. The solution is actually very simple and buyers could turn out to be the ultimate winners: sell them as used. Because the stop-sale order was issued for 2014-2016 model year diesel Cayennes a year ago, Porsche’s North American CEO, Klaus Zellmer, has confirmed those unsold “new” Cayennes will be sold as used. “They will be low-mileage, very attractive used cars, based on the age of the car. There’s always a market for any car. You just have to get the price right,” Zellmer stated. So if you’re a Porsche diesel fan, be on the lookout in the very near future for what could turn out to be a killer deal.
