Porsche Recall in Ireland

Porsche don’t yet know how many cars in Ireland are affected by EU wide recall. The luxury sports car manufacturer has issued an EU-wide recall and with regard to Ireland have said that they will write to owners individually.

Porshe in Ireland don’t yet know how many cars are affected by the European recall of 60,000 vehicles over emissions software.

The actual number of Irish cars is expected to be quite small. German authorities ordered the EU-wide recall after finding they emitted excessive pollutants due to software that turned down emission controls during driving.

Germany’s Federal Motor Transport Authority said it discussed “impermissible defeat devices” that led to increased emissions of harmful nitrogen oxides at Volkswagen’s Porsche sports car division.

The result of the investigation is the mandatory recall of 6,755 4.2-litre V8 diesel Cayenne vehicles from 2015 and 2016, and 52,831 3-litre V6 diesel Macans.

A spokesperson in Ireland estimated that around 34 Cayennes were registered here between the relevant dates of 2015 and 2016 but that a number of those could have been exported since.

It wasn’t immediately clear how many Porsche cars were impacted so Porsche will write to owners going forward. The vehicles affected were certified under the Euro 6 standard.

Porsche’s engines are made by the Volkswagen Group’s Audi luxury division.
