06/29/22 | Preliminary Approval Granted for $80M Settlement
Judge Charles R. Breyer of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted preliminary approval of an $80 million settlement agreement reached with Volkswagen and Porsche regarding emissions-cheating claims in half a million of its gasoline vehicles. The lawsuit claimed fuel economy inaccuracies in certain 2005 to 2020 models. Under the settlement, consumers in the most basic bracket of the class can receive payments from $250 to $1,109 per vehicle, depending on their vehicle's revised fuel economy ratings and how long they had their vehicle. Those who purchased higher-performance vehicles can receive an additional $250 in compensation, with other payments of $200 per vehicle available to other eligible class members.

  • 2008 - 2013 gasoline-powered Porsche 911


Affected gas-powered Porsche Panamera and 911 models are currently being investigated by Germany's motor vehicle authority, KBA. The vehicles are suspected to contain a device that manipulates the gas engines to hide illegal levels of emissions output. Hagens Berman has pioneered emissions-cheating lawsuits against a number of automakers, including Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Volkswagen and others.

This emissions tampering by Porsche likely means that resale values of affected Panamera and 911 models will be diminished, further harming owners.


Porsche cars are luxury vehicles, costing purchasers upwards of $74,400 to $263,000 across the range of different models offered by the automaker. Hagens Berman believes Porsche vehicle owners deserve more for the premium prices they paid, and that Porsche should be held accountable for knowingly selling vehicles that do not comply with the law and will require adjustments to bring them into compliance, and will likely affect resale value. While Porsche would rather wait until they are forced to act, we think those affected owners should receive immediate help.


Hagens Berman is one of the most successful auto litigation law firms in the U.S. and is presently leading nationwide cases against major automakers for emissions-cheating, safety defects and negligence, and your claim will be handled by attorneys experienced in automotive consumer law. The firm also served as co-lead counsel in another case against Porsche concerning an emissions cheat device in the 2016 Dieselgate scandal, as the first law firm in the nation to file suit against the automaker and other defendants Audi and Volkswagen.


There is no cost or fee whatsoever involved in joining this case. In the event Hagens Berman or any other firm obtains a settlement that provides benefits to class members, the court will decide a reasonable fee to be awarded to the class' legal team. In no case will any class member ever be asked to pay any out-of-pocket sum.
