    Thanks for posting. Good news for RC if the build the 960. Sounds like the R8 is going away.

    Interesting read of the corporate maneuverings

    Autocar says the next R8 is 100% EV.  They said it just this week.

    Truth is: Right now, the whole VW Group is in a big mess. Nothing is definitive right now, so there is a lot of crap floating around, don't believe everything you read. I talk to people directly in the higher hierarchy of VW Group and nobody knows for sure what will be right now, so we need to be patient until things start to calm down. There are lots of EV plans, lots of other plans but so far, things change almost at a daily pace. Smiley

    I’m not surprised.  New CEO is still working out the business transformation plans...shaping his strategy. He has to be looking at the EV investment versus actual market size over the next ten years.

    A couple of months ago, I was almost certain VW would go full EV in the near future but right now, it seems these ambitious plans have changed.
