Berlin - Germany's transport minister says that what authorities consider illegal software has been found in a Porsche diesel Cayenne and they will order a recall of the SUV.

Alexander Dobrindt said on Thursday (July 29) that the model affected is a Cayenne 3.0-litre TDI that is still in production.

Wheels24 has contacted Porsche SA regarding the recall. The automaker says it's waiting for confirmation from its German headquarters.

He said that authorities will order an obligatory recall as in previous such cases. He added that 7500 such vehicles have been registered in Germany and some 22 000 across Europe.

Dobrindt said that the finding of the "defeat device" software resulted from tests carried out by German authorities. He said that "a so-called warm-up strategy" is triggered when cars are being tested that is not activated during normal driving.
