The crisis at the car manufacturer VW now also has personnel consequences for the subsidiaries Porsche and Audi. The Porsche board member responsible for research, Wolfgang Hatz, has to go, as the German press agency learned on Thursday from corporate circles.

From 2001 to 2009, the Porsche manager Hatz worked as an engine developer in the VW Group - initially at Audi, later at Volkswagen itself. Since February 2011, he has been a member of the board of the VW subsidiary Porsche. A Porsche spokesman said there was no comment on personnel speculation.
