The diesel emission scandal has caused many automakers to rethink plans and possibly end development on diesel powertrains. Volvo has already announced that it would not be developing any new diesel powertrains in the coming years. Now, Porsche could be following them.
Porsche CEO Oliver Blume tells Reuters the company will make the decision whether or not it will continue developing diesel engines by the end of the decade.
"Of course we are looking into this issue. We have not made a decision on it," said Blume.
"For the generations that will follow there are different scenarios."
Blume said over the next 10 to 15 years, Porsche would offer a mix of combustion engines, plug-in hybrid vehicles, and electrics.
Currently, diesels make up 15 percent of Porsche's global sales. In 2016, the German automaker sold a record 237,778 diesel vehicles - comprised of the Cayenne, Macan, and Panamera.
