Porsche Emissions Cheat?

Just in case you haven't heard the news regarding Porsche possibly using cheat software to avoid emissions testing (by steering angle)...

LOL - all these 'cheats', i.e. FCA Dodge Ram Diesel one revealed today by WVU who also broke the VW scandal..

Gosh, anyone think maybe, just maybe, it's the standards which are wrong not to mention, at the very least, "testing protocols".

Imagine the full report results if one were to incorporate 'clean coal' emissions emitted to produce the electricity used charging all those Prii, Hindsights and Dolts outside of grocery stores. Or carbon emissions emitting making said batteries.

Wait, hasn't GM also been discovered to have 'cheats' recently... and Mercedes... and...and...and...

At least Tesla builds something that is, for most part, at least aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
