Turning to business news, it seems that VW subsidiary Porsche— maybe you’ve heard of them— is now embroiled in the Dieselgate shenanigans. The EPA is saying that emissions-masking software has been found in diesel Cayenne models, allowing them to skirt emissions laws in the same manner as VW’s 4-cylinder diesels. However, Porsche spokesmen say the EPA has it wrong this time and that the software is a legitimate anti-pollution measure. This is the first time the Volkswagen group has pushed back on any of the diesel-cheating allegations, so this one could lead to fireworks.
