We all know what happened back in 2015 when VW was caught cheating with emissions and they had to stop selling new TDI Diesel cars in North America, well me living in a country that has less strict emissions and where the Dieselgate news didn’t really got big I thought it was just a matter of time until we got some of…
If you can’t pass a test legitimately, just cheat it. Doesn’t matter if it’s standardized emissions testing, or if it’s automated code unit testing.
Per Autocar, looks like all Porsche diesel production (in the form of the Macan and Panamera) has been ended as of yesterday, although the next Cayenne is still planned to get a diesel option.

Last week Audi announced that they are ending their extremely successful World Endurance Championship program. Today, VW announced that they are also dropping out of the World Rally Championship. It’s most unfortunate, since Audi and VW have dominated both racing series for as long as they’ve been in them. But it’s…
Looks like Dieselgate claims yet another victim, although I’m actually surprised they started this season.
