"According to a German financial paper, Stuttgart auto giants Porsche, may attempt to buy enough shares in Audi, to take it from its parent group VAG.



If they did acquire the Ingolstadt company, maybe we could expect more vehicles along the lines of the awesome Audi RS2, which was assembled jointly with Porsche at their plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany. "

sounds interesting. found it on http://germancarscene.com/

Curious move considering all the $ they just invested in developing their own sedan, Audi's bread and butter.

Maybe the new sedan will become an Audi and they can dump the SUV (Audi has their own version) to just become a sports car company again.

Hi,

Car Companies talk What Ifs all the time. Ford and GM have even discussed a merger. I'd rather bet on capturing Bin Laden than anything from the Automotive Sector...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
