Porsche AG is on its way to becoming a blocking minority stakeholder in Volkswagen AG, attempting to raise its stake in the struggling automaker by 3.9 percent of total shares to a total stake of 25.1 percent. The only thing standing in its way at the moment is clearance from the German Cartel Office.

Porsche, which is already the largest single stakeholder in VW, will be able to exert more influence over Volkswagen once the deal is done. As German laws are relaxing on how much of a company an individual stakeholder can own, Porsche's move is being looked at as a way to ensure that Volkswagen doesn't become a takeover victim.

      #4 Richard Warren: Technically, isn't the Boxster the indirect successor to the 914?

      Still, I like the looks of the 914 better...

      So, maybe make a 4-cyl Boxster, make the styling like a modernized 914, and sell 'em as the Volkswagen New 914?

      You haven't lived until you've driven a 914 6 over speed on a wet road and it comes around on you. It would be great if they brought on back. What a thought #3

      When you say Volkswagen, you really mean Volkswagen AG, the VAG company, the one owning all those brands like Audi, SEAT, Lamborghini, Volkswagen, Å koda, Bentley, Bugatti brands, right?

      Soon coming, the PVAG, Porsche, Volkswagen, Audi group.
