The car manufacturer Porsche stated in its sports car that there may be a faulty fuel consumption, and in that way pointed to a case with the German Federal Motor Transport Bureau. It was published last night by the magazine "Spiegel" (online edition). The vehicles from the years of construction in 2016 and 2017 were hit.
Porsche has confirmed that these are deviations in wind resistance values, which are used in chassis dynamometer tests. The facts are still under investigation, both internally and in close consultation with the authorities, the report says. "Porsche believes that it is, of course, an expression of our corporate culture to actively inform responsible authorities," the spokesman said.
The report said that the Porsche General Director Oliver Blume allegedly called federal transport minister Andreas Shayer (CSU) and explained the case. If the actual values of consumption deviate too far from the original ones, they are threatened with damages and taxes, as well as possibly fines. After the Germans, the US authorities should also be informed.
