Two VW brands are squabbling over the company's diesel engine scandal.
Volkswagen's diesel emissions scandal has turned internal with the company's Porsche brand reportedly demanding $234 million from Audi to cover damages stemming from dieselgate.
According to Germany's Bild newspaper, by way of Reuters, Porsche is seeking 200 million Euros ($234 million) to help cover costs incurred as the result of the emissions-cheating scheme. Porsche sourced its 3.0L V6 turbodiesel from Audi, which the German automaker later admitted was fitted with a cheating device.
According to the report, Porsche wants the money to cover retrofits, legal counseling and customer measures. Porsche used Audi's 3.0L V6 in its Panamera and Cayenne models.
Porsche and Audi parent VW declined to comment on the matter. In all about 80,000 vehicles produced by VW, Porsche and Audi were fitted with the non-compliant diesel V6.
