Volkswagen AG agreed to pay at least $80 million to settle Porsche buyers’ complaints that emissions and fuel economy test results were improperly skewed.

Owners of specific gasoline-powered Porsches sold from 2005 to 2020 will be eligible for compensation of $250 to $1,109 per vehicle, according to a settlement agreement filed Wednesday in San Francisco federal court.
