Porsche Cayenne diesel emissions rise above legal limits, report says

The V6 TDI diesel engine appears as the culprit

The information comes from Germany after a diesel Porsche Cayenne SUV was tested by TUV Nord who were in turn commissioned by German weekly Der Spiegel.

Published on Friday, Der Spiegel’s report (sub. req.) cites the test results which were higher than the current laws allow, according to Reuters, which does not mention any figures in this regard.

Moreover, the same media outlet points out that the tested model, a Cayenne V6 TDI underwent both normal driving conditions and the test bench.

Reuters also says Helge Schmidt, head of testing at TUV Nord, stated that “emissions in the test were higher than the limits for this type of car” and, therefore, shouldn't have been certified by the authorities.

Porsche’s response came via a statement saying the company took note of the test results but finds them “not comprehensible.”

This could be an ongoing story and we’ll keep it updated should more information surface.
