Porsche confirmed that we are talking about deviations in the values of wind resistance, which are used when testing on a chassis dynamometer. According to him, the facts are still being investigated both domestically and in close consultation with the authorities. “Porsche takes it for granted and actively informing the responsible authorities as an expression of its corporate culture,” the spokesman said.
The report said that Porsche CEO Oliver Blum apparently called Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheueru and explained the situation. If actual consumption values deviate too far from the originally stated values, claims for damages and taxes, and possibly also fines, are at stake.
