As an effort to make the new 5 Series diesel model more popular in the US (yes, diesel model, because there will be only one available in the 5 Series line-up), the Marketing people at BMW NA created a series of brand new commercials.
One of them shows the 535d model going up against a sports car, the Porsche 911 Carrera, at a red-light. Sure, it might be a stretch that the 5er defeated the Porsche so easily but with 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque and the amazing 8-speed ZF gearbox, it might as well be true.

The result is not the point here. The point is that Americans should really get onboard the diesel train and stop having misconceptions about these engines. They are just as clean as petrol these days and the advantages are more than obvious!
