Porsche And 3.0 Litre Engines Allegedly Affected VW Scandal
"The breaking of the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal has prompted a great deal of investigation in to VW Group vehicles, and the VW Group now stand accused of cheating emissions results for Porsche and 3.0-litre models as well as those originally confirmed to date."
The American Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who initially investigated the irregularities for Volkswagen Group emissions results have accused the German auto giants of installing software to cheat yet more vehicles, which include Porsche models and 3.0-litre models.
The latest reports, which come in the wake of the admission from VW engineers that CO2 emissions are also affected, has led to yet more value from the VW Group shares being wiped out as the scandal widens.
The bill that VW Group is set to pay is only getting larger and we’re fighting to make sure that our clients are fairly compensated for the financial losses that they are set to incur.
New Models Affected
The latest news from the EPA – which is yet to be confirmed by the VW Group – suggests that the following new vehicles may be affected by the widening of the scandal:
- Porsche Cayenne (Porsche are a part of the Volkswagen Group)
- VW Toureg
- Audi A6; Audi A7; Audi A8; Audi A8L; Audi Q5
Affected models are thought to be 3.0-litre six cylinder diesel engines from 2013 to this year. Around 10,000 in the USA have been indicated as being affected, and although bosses as Porsche have stated to the media that they are ‘shocked’ to learn of the discovery, we are far from surprised.
