Not yet. Any ideas as to what may be wrong
Porsche Mechanic: Wolfgang, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

maybe hybrid system temp, a sensor in the engine . it's hard to say because too many variables . that is why the scan test is needed to narrow down to one or couple of possibilities.

on these hybrids there is no one common issue from the Porsche, Audi and VW 3.0l.
