Wolfgang & Winterkorn Get Kicked Up a Notch at VW

The man who along with your host, Dieter, was credited with Chrysler Group's dramatic turnaround is goin' straight to the top o' the world, ma. Or at least to the top of VW AG, where he'll now be in charge of all brands' production. Meanwhile Audi HMIC (and yet another German auto exec with a fabulous name) Martin Winterkorn is due for a promotion as well, putting him in the product development hot seat for all VW AG vehicles. These promotions, in the wake of the announced edging out of Herr Doktor Pi ch, seem like steps in the right direction for Hitler's brainchild. But the question looms, whither Donckerwolke?
