Mr. Porsche goes to Washington: Low-volume CAFE classification could save Porsche millions
Under current CAFE regulations, Porsche paid $4.6 million in fines last year. When the new regulations are adopted, that number stands to increase significantly, which is why Porsche wants to keep the new low-volume provision in tact and has hired a full-time lobbyist to make that happen. Other automakers, of course, are not too happy about Porsche's efforts, with a Mercedes lobbyist saying 64,000 cars "isn't really a small number." The question is, could a Porsche that owns VW still be a low-volume manufacturer?
