The goal is to increase profits by $4.9 billion by 2008. VW plans to accomplish this kind of increase and improve the quality of the VW brand products. This quality improvement is also aimed at decreasing warranty costs. They are planning to make significant cuts in materials, production, and overhead costs as well. VW plans are aggressive. Lately, they have been eyeing production options outside of their current facilities. Perhaps an acquisition of Proton would give them access to lower cost production facilities.
