While that's not nearly enough to cover the purchase of a sweet pair of Porsche Design sunglasses, it's a whole lot better than nothing. The lawsuit claims that cars with Cognac, Luxor Beige, Natural Brown, Platinum Grey or Sand Beige interiors are defective and the glare is a factory flaw. The plaintiffs claim that the purchase of sunglasses is a modification intended to fix this flaw. While Porsche admits no fault and claims that there were no accidents or injuries caused by this glare, it decided to settle the lawsuit rather than head to court.
Many automakers use black or darker colored dashboards specifically to prevent this problem. Now we just need GM to stop using chrome or shiny plastic on the interior of its cars.
