Porsche moves to block Dieselgate probe – Bosch claims 'breakthrough' on diesel emissions - WhatsApp raises minimum user age in Europe
Chief Executive Oliver Blume has said the sports carmaker will focus on petrol/gasoline, hybrid and all-electric vehicles. Porsche and its parent Volkswagen have seen their image take a beating in the wake of Dieselgate.
France and Germany have asked the EU executive to approve state subsidies for a cross-border battery cell consortium to curb Asia's market dominance. German analyst Marcel Weiss says the investment might not be worth it.
German politicians and business leaders are increasingly worried about the long-term impact of the domestic carmakers' emissions-cheating scam. Dieselgate doesn't look like it's going to die down anytime soon.
Two years of leaks about emissions cheating and pollution fears have damaged Germany's standing as the world leader in car production. But analysts think the scandal could have surprising positives for the industry.
