Diesel cars over a certain age are banned in certain parts of Germany to help reduce pollution. Porsche is adding to this contribution by stop making diesel cars.
Porsche is the very first ever major German car maker to withdraw from making diesel cars – the chief executive of Porsche, Oliver Blume said "We have never developed and produced diesel engines ourselves. Nevertheless, Porsche's image has suffered. The diesel crisis has caused us a lot of trouble."
Porsche has said it will stick to what it's best at – so we will be seeing a lot more to petrol, hybrid and electric cars. Their sales are not suspected to be affected by this due to only 14 % of their cars worldwide run on diesel.
