The German State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, home to carmakers Porsche and Daimler AG, faces a 10,000 euro ($11,650) fine unless it includes bans on some older diesel models in the city of Stuttgart’s a clean-air plan.

The state government must amend its policy by the end of August or face the financial penalty, the Stuttgart administrative court ruled on Thursday. The plan must include bans of all Euro 5 type diesels starting September next year, the tribunal said in a statement on Friday.
