The internal-combustion version of the Porsche Macan will not be sold in Europe after this spring, partly because of the expense of bringing it into compliance with a U.N. rule governing cybersecurity in cars.

Some European car manufacturers are discontinuing older vehicle models ahead of the full implementation of a U.N. cybersecurity regulation in July.

The regulation applies to vehicles sold in the EU, Japan, and South Korea, including U.S. brands.
