It has just been confirmed by Porsche that the U.S. is getting two new models, to follow behind the 911 Carrera Cabriolet’s upcoming premier at next week’s 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

Already available in Europe, the Cayenne Diesel will be powered by a slightly faster version of the motor found in the TDI variants of the Volkswagen Touareg and Audi Q7. With 15-hp over the Q7 at 240hp, the 406 lb-ft of torque still remains the same on the 3.0-liter V6.
