We reported a few weeks ago that while DaimlerChrysler reportedly has no interest in buying a hunk o' burnin' Volkswagen, that the companies may still collaborate. The German Car Blog busts out with their mad translating and parsing skills and informs us that according to German newspaper Die Welt the corporate man-handing is basically a go at this point. It apparently centers around a joint van product, as well as the new Polo and some as-yet unknown Dodge models. Apparently, DCX/Audi cooperation isn't in the picture, and won't be for the foreseeable future.
