The company produced the 3.0-liter Porsche MCT.BA diesel engine from 2014 to 2018 and installed it only on the Macan crossover in the 95B body in a modification before the first restyling. This motor belonged to the EA897 diesel family and differed little from the CRCA power unit.

Disadvantages of the Porsche MCT.BA engine
- Diesels of the EA897 series are very reliable and, with good maintenance, are rarely disturbed.
- But the modern common rail system with piezo injectors does not tolerate bad fuel.
- Most complaints are related to regular oil leaks, especially in the cylinder block.
- After 200,000 km, timing chains often stretch.
- As in many similar engines, a particulate filter and an EGR valve cause a lot of trouble.
