    Will be very interested to see how these two companies get along long term. Does not appear to be a match made in heaven to me.

    It's a perfect match IMO. They have already been working close together and sharing platforms. It's just official now.

    My understanding is that there were a lot of hurt egos on the Porsche side. May or may not make a difference long term. In terms of technology and positioning, no question it is a good match. I wonder how the cultures will mesh, which is always more difficult in my experience.

    The guy who failed at Porsche to acquire VW is gone. So I think they moved past it. We will see, this was inevitable.

    Eh...I had an 00 A6 2.7T - piece of $#@!. Wife had a 02 A4 1.8T - also piece of $#@!.

    Cool cars, but in my personal experience, the reliability was terrible. New ones might be better...dunno.
