VW Caddy Carrera Cup Edition: A Diesel Porsche Van?

When is a Carrera not a Porsche? When it's this VW Caddy Van Carrera Cup Edition, a special model evidently designed to be either a support vehicle for Porsche gentlemen racers, or a wanna-be racer for European handymen. We're not exactly sure if this has anything to do with Porsche and VW's on-again, off-again relationship, but the Caddy panel van has been decked out just like a 911 GT3 RS. Though you can only buy it in the land of meatballs, gummy fish and strangely hypnotic chefs — Sweden. So what goods does this track day van pack under the hood?

Powering the V-Dub Carrera van is the 140 HP 2.0-liter turbo-diesel. That's good for 0-to-60 in 10.6 seconds. We're not sure if that makes it technically the first diesel Porsche or not. Probably there's rules on that like you have to have an actual Porsche badge on the vehicle and it had to have been built by the German automaker that now pretty much owns this one. Whatever. Those are like technicalities. Either way, we'd be more than happy to run errands with this thing. [Bil.feber via CarScoop]
