The first Porsche diesel arrived on the market 16 years ago, and we really should not be surprised by this announcement considering the new third-generation Cayenne SUV doesn't even offer a diesel. The last two diesel variants on sale, at least in Europe, are the Macan S Diesel and Panamera 4S Diesel. Both are now discontinued. Diesel Porsches have already been dropped in the US in favor of a new electrification strategy. Autocar
further points out diesel’s demise at Porsche is also linked to “another software update” that was still part of an “ongoing consultation with the authorities.” Interesting.
