There is an excellent article about the Porsche-VW merger by Jack Ewing of the New York Times that poses this question and many other good ones about the merger.
Do you think the merger will turn out to be a good thing for Porsche? Do you share the attitude of Jim Hearndon, vice chair of the Independent Porsche Enthusiasts Club of Great Britain, that “anything that means they [Porsche] survive is good.”
Did they really have a choice?
I hope that Porsche will stay true to its roots and experience the same kind of success that Lamborghini has had as part of VW.
That is going to be a little trickier for Porsche because it was already making 100,000 cars a year, as opposed to the handful that Lamborghini was making at the time it was acquired.
