I believe I read that the head of the “ Transport department “ said no amount of software updates will cure this problem.. although the statement was not specific to engines cc.

Imagine if Porsche have to do a compulsory 'buy back' of all the SDs sold in the EU! Should put the price of GT3s up?

I will take a Turbo please. :D

With the upcoming factory shut down on the production of petrol engines and the temporary shut down on diesel production there are areas of Stuttgart and Leipzig that are going to be very quiet this summer.

That's easy - just stick the service costs up and the markup on used cars.

In away I think what they are doing is the right thing , long term.. it will make the brand more desirable long term , and possibly have the bragging rights that their brand is not associated with any form of emissions cheating. Are Audi/ Vw doing the same as Porcshe by shutting down their factories too? As the engines as we know ,are supplied by them, so would make sense?

As the new engines are joint Audi/Porsche (as will be the coming various EV platforms) I think it would pay both - or the co-joined union- to put as much distance as possible between them/it and VW.
