Quite a few reports out over the last few days that Porsche is no longer an independent company. The latest crop of rumors sprout from a report in Der Spiegel that VW/Piech has completed a reverse takeover and purchased the sport car manufacturing division, Porsche AG, of Porsche SE (and in doing so purchased the option to purchase themselves) yet provide no real proof or facts for the basis of their story.
Porsche spokesman Anton Hunger, when asked if a decision had been reached, said, "we have not been informed of one," he went on to add that the Spiegel report was speculation that the company would not comment on. My personal experience shows that when Porsche makes it a point to deny something, it usually means that the truth is something very similar and will reveal itself shortly.
If the rumor(s) is/are true, what happens to the point being made by Dr. Porsche in the video below?
