Diesel models of the Porsche Cayenne have much higher emission than legal limits, German weekly Der Spiegel reported on Friday, citing test results.
Der Spiegel asked German test institute, TUV Nord, to verify emission levels for the Porsche Cayenne V6 TDI, under normal driving conditions.
The magazine quoted TUV Nord Helge Schmidt as saying, "Emissions in this test were higher than the limits for this type of car. With these values, the car would not have been approved by the authorities."
In response to the findings, Porsche said in a statement, "For us, they are not comprehensible." Additionally, the luxury sports carmaker stated that emissions depend on several conditions such as engine load, speed and temperature.
There has been heavy scrutiny of diesel vehicles since Porsche's parent company, Volkswagen acknowledged in September 2015 close to 11 million of its vehicles globally had the software installed that cheated emissions tests.
Volkswagen pleaded guilty in April and was subsequently sentenced for the emissions scandal. The company has agreed to pay up to $25 billion in the U.S. to address claims from owners, environmental regulators, states and dealers and proposed to buy back close to 500,000 polluting U.S. vehicles.
