Default Audi CEO arrested

Surprised that NONE of the major U.S. car mags have picked up the story:

Saw this on carscoops, not a major print mag but still. I am sure other places will pick it up soon enough.

Oddly enough I feel the new A1 was supposed to show up on their press site today but with this arrest they may have err decided against it or priorities are elsewhere.

It won't be long before the phrase "honest German auto executive" is an oxymoron.

Truth in engineering is already trashed so I think you're right.

Well just now they have to recall some 750d cars, as they cheat. But, apparently it was a mistake, as they have the wrong software on their ECU, making them think they are X5 and thus emit more than they should

I leave it up to everybody whether they think this sounds credible...
