    Re: jail martha

    call me crazy, but I think Porsche buying into VW is kind of just symbolic. I think it was just to save VW from becoming owned by Koreans or something. VW/Porsche/Audi already seeemd very close to me, I mean VW/Porsche were started by the same guy. It always made me laugh when Porsche talked about VW like they were this "other" company with no association, whether historically or business-wise, with Porsche.

    Re: jail martha

    I don't think it was driven by any sentimental or nationalistic motives. Porsche obtains a lot of technology and engineering support from VW via platform sharing, and it would have been detrimental to Porsche if another investor had taken control and severed this relationship, or even reduced the level of interaction between the two firms.
