Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn has officially resigned amid the diesel emissions scandal, also known as Dieselgate.

Winterkorn promised he did not know about the illegal software being used to alter emissions readings on the eleven million cars in question, but that he is willing to take full responsibility. There is speculation that Porsche CEO Matthais Mueller will be the next VW CEO, but nothing is certain at this time.
