    Rumours : Volkswagen to buy stake in Ferrari!


    If Volkswagen has taught us anything, it's that you can never be too rich or have too many high-dollar automakers under your umbrella. Europe's largest auto group already encompasses Lamborghini, Bugatti and Bentley, is in the process of absorbing Porsche, and makes a couple more six-figure sports cars with Audi badges. But according to reports coming in from Europe, VW has its eyes set on acquiring yet another top-dollar automaker: Ferrari.

    Given that it already owns Maranello's most direct competitor, you might be inclined to file this report in the "wild rumor of the day" category and be done with it. And while you'd certainly be justified, there's a whole lot of eyebrow-raising statistics surrounding this report. Rival Fiat group has been looking for ways to raise capital to keep both itself and Chrysler going, and selling stake in Ferrari has been tipped as a possible avenue. Reports have also linked Volkswagen – which reportedly has some $27 billion in cash on hand – with a possible Alfa Romeo takeover.

    For his part, Fiat/Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne says neither is on the table, but Volkswagen chairman Ferdinand Piech has shown us nothing if not a penchant for buying up any brands he fancies. Given the fact that Fiat needs cash and Volkswagen is willing to spend, we wouldn't rule anything out just yet.
    http://www.autoblog.com/2010/11/11/r...ferrari-stake/

    Rumours circulating say the ‘Group is now thinking of buying stakes in Ferrari, even though it isn’t currently up for sale. About a month ago, Fiat boss, Sergio Marchionne, hinted that he wanted to raise more funds for the Fiat and Chrysler partnership and was thinking of selling off a certain amount of Ferrari shares in an initial public offering type deal.

    Volkswagen has been selling well lately, and reports to have around US$27 billion (about AU$27 billion) in profits sitting around. Volkswagen chairman, Ferdinand Piech, has mentioned he would like to add the Italian super-brand, or some of it, to the Volkswagen collection. Although, both of these expressions by the brand bosses are just ‘dreams’ at the moment, and no plans have been made.

    Ideas may have since sizzled out, but if auto giant Volkswagen is waving some cash around, it might come time for Fiat to sell off some of its assets for revenue, if it wants to remain as a competitive brand on an international level.

    A German Ferrari though, what do you think?

    Gotta give props to VW. They have really been raising the bar for other manufacturers in the past few years! Not only with the VW brand but even with the high end brands they own.

    Volkswagen to own the world?

    The last thing VW needs is more unreliable brands under it's umbrella IMHO...

    Good guess, makes sense. That explains everything then. He added some stickers, suddenly gained 100hp and couldn't handle the extra power. Boom, clanche, ditch.

    Impossible que Ferrari et Lamborghini appartiennent au même groupe. De plus, Fiat n'a pas du tout manifester son intention de s'en départir. Finalement, elle n'aurait aucune raison de le faire puisque les profits sont en hausse.

    Porsche, Bugatti, Lamborghini et Bentley appartiennent au meme group. Pourquoi donc pas Ferrari?

    Bin oui, tout le monde sait ça.

    Parce que Ferrari ne peut pas appartenir au même groupe que Lamborghini.

    Ça serait comme si Toyota et Honda appartenaient au même groupe.

    This will never happen, not with Di Montezemelo in place at Ferrari.

    Poor Enzo, he must turn in his grave just to hear rumours about this.

    Alfa Romeo sold to VW, I can see that happen. But not Ferrari, and not to the fucking Germans.

    Enzo did not sell to Ford in the late 60's when Ferrari needed money, I don't see Ferrari being sold to VW.

    If Ferrari needs money, I would rather they get it from an private Arab Equity firm from Abu Dhabi then VW.

    You guys have to look at this from the business point of view and not from the car enthusiast's angle. If you read the OP there are some strong arguments as to why it would be in Fiat's best interest to let VW take some stake in Ferrari.
