I know this is happening to Porsche, will this affect other manufacturers?

No more Clio RS until ..... who knows when? As already discussed elsewhere on t'forum.

"world" whos world exactly....bit of joke calling it that but at least it will give a bit better idea on co2 & mpg perhaps if certain car makers had not been found cheating then it might not have been so draconian

and just think of the extra road tax it will cost

Yes any new legislation means more money for the consumer, good point.

WLTP proposal was already in progress and due to be in place around 2020, but due to the recent emission issues it was brought forward hence all the delays. It is also compounded by the lack of licenced test centres and personnel which would have been in place if the original time table was kept.

Brought forward from the 2020 timetable.... Interesting point this as the Govt pull the same stunt in other industries and as people weren't or aren't ready for the earlier application of a deadline, there's a rush and the resources to get the job done become rather harder to find. Just applies further stress to the task. Does the civil service really do this on purpose? If there's a clear fiscal benefit to the Exchequer I'm sure they make the decision informed by a spreadsheet of cash flows. Excuse me if this is wandering off-topic.
