a) It ain't for sale - VAG has said so.
b) No, I think _YOU_ should look up market shares - and forget NA, where Audi
barely sniffs at the market. 26,000 vehicles a day pass my house - I can go
days without seeing a Porsche and never more than minutes without seeing an
Audi. Check out the relative plant sizes - Porsche Zuffenhausen is little
more than a pink garden shed compared even with Audi Neckarsulm, which fills
a whole valley - and Audi Ingolstadt is even bigger.
There really is no comparison - Porsche is a fleabite compared with Audi.
