The National - News - Business - - Inside Track -

Pros­e­cu­tors in Stuttgart have launched a pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion against em­ploy­ees at Ger­man sports car maker Porsche to see whether it was in­volved in de­sign­ing en­gine man­age­ment soft­ware to cheat emis­sions tests. It is the lat­est part of a sweep­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion of Volk­swa­gen Group, which owns the Audi, VW and Porsche brands. Il­le­gal soft­ware has been found in VW, Audi and Porsche cars equipped with diesel en­gines. Some Porsche mod­els are equipped with 3-litre diesel en­gines sup­plied by Audi.
