Porsche to recall 22,000 cars over emissions software

Germany's transport minister has announced a recall of 22,000 Porsche cars to remove what he says is illegal emissions-controlling software. VW admitted in 2015 that some of its diesel cars were fitted with a "Defeat device" to cheat on emissions tests. "These vehicles are equipped with modern emissions-controlling technology so we think these vehicles are technically able to stick to emissions limits and we therefore believe Porsche will quickly be in a position to bring the software into conformity." Some 2.5 million VW cars are already covered by a recall of diesel vehicles introduced after the firm first owned up to cheating regulatory emissions tests. Last week it was announced that VW subsidiary Audi would be offering a free software upgrade for 850,000 diesel cars across Europe, some 600,000 of them in Germany.
