Default Porsche to stop building Diesels

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-45619994

The German carmaker Porsche says it will stop making diesel cars, and concentrate on petrol, electric and hybrid engines instead.

It follows a 2015 scandal in which its parent company, Volkswagen, admitted it had cheated emissions tests for diesel engines.

Diesel cars over a certain age have been banned in parts of some German cities in a bid to cut pollution.

The Porsche chief executive said the company was "not demonising diesel".

"It is and will remain an important propulsion technology," Oliver Blume said.

"We as a sports car manufacturer, however, for whom diesel has always played a secondary role, have come to the conclusion that we would like our future to be diesel-free.

"Petrol engines are well suited for sporty driving."

Given it seems the 3.0 V6 TDI had cheats right until the newest Euro 6d TMEMP version, it#s hardly surprising that Porsche doesn't want to be too much involved with the scandals.

Also, I think a Porsche needs no tractor engine. If you can afford a Porsche, you should be able to afford a petrol engine's consumption. Otherwise, you can't afford a Porsche. It's that simple....

Oh I'm certain in the currently slightly overworked VAG CUV rebadging department there are people having wet dreams about that...
