Rolls Royce- no longer--it was a fluke how BMW snatched RR from VW. Hence, VW ended up w/ Bentley instead. Porsche, on the other hand, the Porsche family owns stakes on VAG (hence on the financial aspect, they were able to develop the Cayenne along w/ the Touareg) Former CEO Piech is grandson of Ferdinand Porsche- and he had a lot to say of what goes and what not goes w/ VW at the time of his reign. Rumor has it, that he's not quite keen on the current CEO's plans w/ VW- who used to run BMW. However, I do like the fact that he has hinted of "R" version for VW in the future.

Did you know that VW also owns some stake on SCANIA (not the car-SAAB) but for their marine stuff.

There are 'rumor's or talks about acquiring another Italian nameplate- currently owned by the FIAT group. I think VAG just needs to concentrate now on their prime product- Volkswagen- especially in the U.S. market, instead of acquiring other companies.
