Global automakers like the Volkswagen Group are constantly paying close attention to their finances. If a certain brand is not performing the way it should, immediate action is often taken. When VW realized Bentley was losing money, a deadline was given to get things right or else. Today, Bentley is thriving, mainly thanks to Porsche’s assistance. But last fall word came in that VW was interested in selling a significant stake in a certain other ultra-premium brand, and now it seems a final decision on the matter is close.
Speaking to German language Automobilwoche, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume acknowledged electric vehicle hypercar company Rimac Automobili and Bugatti could work well together but stopped short of outright stating a deal was imminent.
