You cannot stop Martin Winterkorn, you can only hope to contain him. As of yesterday, that is. As of today, he is (possibly) in full blitz mode. The boys at motorauthority.com are reporting that Porsche, as the largest shareholder in the Volkswagen Group, is about to spin Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini and Bugatti off into a Ford style PAG group sans Ford. Or in this case, sans VeeDub, Skoda and Seat. All that leaps to our collective mind is how weird it will be to have the 911 and R8 under the same roof. And what will Lambo do if there is in fact another Bugatti? And what on earth will they base the next A3 on? The Cayman? Stay tuned to this blog, eat your veggies, etc.
