Porsche Vehicles in Sri Lanka
The Porsche vehicle brand has been officially available within Sri Lanka for more than 20 years, ever since the current authorized distributor for the Porsche brand, Eurocars, started offering Porsche vehicles in 1996. Without a surprise, the reputation of Porsche was known in the country even before that, due to the outstanding success of the Porsche 911. The local car enthusiasts, who were eying to inspect a Porsche made vehicle, quickly got in contact with the dealer and those who were able to afford the premium price tag, did not waste their time and bought a new car.
One of the biggest downsides for these vehicles in Sri Lanka (apart from the price), is their relatively low fuel economy. While this might be a turnoff for some buyers, it may not be a big issue for those who have the money and the motivation to ride a luxurious Porsche car. Overall, if someone is looking for a top class brand that offers high level of driving satisfaction, than a Porsche vehicle might be the one for you.

In fact, the base model of the Cayenne is powered using a 3.6 L V6 engine, which also uses an 8-Speed Automatic Tiptronic S transmission to move its drivetrain. Due to this, the Porsche Cayenne can generate more than 220 kW of power and 400 Nm of torque, which is enough to tackle all commuting challenges seen in Sri Lanka.

Porsche Hybrid Vehicles Found in Sri Lanka
Porsche, similar to nearly all other major automobile manufacturers in the world, have taken attempts to design efficient alternate fuel vehicles to strengthen its lineup of cars and SUV’s. One of the biggest disadvantages of most typical Porsche car models have been their fuel economy, which was sacrificed in favor of a very powerful car. However, the company has been determined to tackle this issue with the growing movement towards Hybrid vehicles and has been releasing Hybrid models of some of its popular vehicle designs since 2010. Some of its first attempts included the Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid and the Porsche Panamera S Hybrid, which were later replaced by the more efficient plug-in hybrid varieties of these models, namely the Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid and the Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid. These models are available in the Sri Lankan market through the official agent for the Porsche brand, for those who can afford the high prices of these vehicle models.
