Bauser v. Porsche Cars North America, Civil Action No. 1:23-cv-01054-ELR (U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia).
This consumer class action alleges that Porsche electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles suffer from a defect that causes the charging cables and ports to overheat, which can damage the outlets and be a fire hazard. The complaint alleges that when Porsche became aware of the defect, the company instituted a software fix that doubled the advertised charging time of the vehicles.
The complaint alleges that Porsche has known of the defect for years and, nonetheless, failed to provide an adequate fix while continuing to sell vehicles that possess the defect. The complaint further alleges that Porsche has taken actions to conceal the defect by reprogramming the software in the vehicle to double the amount of time required to charge the vehicle versus what consumers were promised.
