Porsche said it had made a voluntary notification to the authority as “a pre-cautionary measure” a year ago, regarding conformity issues with individual vehicles.

“The current procedure has already been able to find no conformity deviations in the large majority of vehicles,” a Porsche spokesperson said in an emailed statement.

KBA was not immediately available for comment.
