Volkswagen Group’s Porsche unit has advised German regulators that it submitted inaccurate figures about wind resistance values for its 2016-2017 model 911 sports cars.

The faulty reports, which were first reported by Der Spiegel, impact emission calculations for the cars. Porsche says the issue isn’t related to engine emission control software and does not affect the safety of the cars.

Porsche hasn’t indicated how many vehicles are affected by the reporting error.
