Porsche has announced plans to offer two new models in the United States.

First and foremost, the company confirmed the Cayenne Diesel will become the brand's "first compression-ignition car in the USA." It has a 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 245 PS (180 kW / 242 hp) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the crossover to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 7.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 220 km/h (137 mph).

The Cajun, on the other hand, will be unveiled in 2013.  Based on the Audi Q5, the entry-level crossover could be offered with a 220 hp (164 kW / 223 PS) 2.0-liter TFSI and a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 with up to 350 hp (261 kW / 355 PS).

Both models will join the Panamera GTS which will be launched later this spring.
