Porsche and VW expected to keep NA operations independent?
According to the latest report from Automotive News, Porsche Cars North America will continue to report back to Porsche HQ in Germany, as opposed to re-routing the chain of command to go through Volkswagen of America. In this way, Porsche's North American distribution and sales and service networks will continue to operate much as they have, and in the same way which the Volkswagen Group already operates its other premium divisions, with Audi of America reporting back to Ingolstadt, Lamborghini back to Sant'Agata and Bentley back to Crewe. The takeaway? Don't expect to see 911s selling down at your local VW dealership any time soon.
