On the hot SEAT: Sale considered for VW's Spanish brand?
Bernd Pischetsrieder, who will be replaced by Winterkorn, is said to oppose any such sale because it would include a transfer of valuable VW technical and operational information to the new owner. The anti-sale sentiment is apparently shared by Wolfgang Bernhard, but it's reported that he may also be leaving VW and is looking for a way out of his contract.
Amidst all the sale talk, SEAT sales through October are up 4.4%.The automaker has officially issued a blanket denial of any reports regarding a sale, calling the speculation "absurd."
