Audi, Porsche join VW scandal.

Audi, Porsche join VW scandal: EPA finds more emission cheating software. Could this news lead to yet more organisational restructuring within VAG? Do Porsche owners even care about any of this?

And today the suggestion that they also cheated on the CO2 output of petrol engines.

I find the whole notion of corporations cheating very disheartening but the silver lining is that it makes me want a Tesla even more. Google's ex CFO has just joined Tesla

Meanwhile Tesla are busy throwing out "beta" safety critical software. Good luck with that :lol:

Well, you can always cycle or run...or can you? If the food that fuels your body is not produced in an environmentally friendly way, then that too is off limit!
Back on topic, it's not surprising that Audi and Porsche are in too. I mean, life is soo easy when you cheat, at least initially. Not to mention that those groups are run by the same people, pretty much.

Any discounts will be a blip

But hopefully the rules will be tightened or at least the proper checks and balances put in place and greater transparancy required by the OEMs both for emissions and fuel consumption testing.
