Now that VW is caught up in the Porsche dollars, how will Porsche pull the string of its new teammates Lamborghini and Bugatti?

For those who are not into the automaker gossips. VW acquired a few years back, Lamborghini and Bugatti with the millions of dollars made out of the also iconic Golf, Jetta and Passat.

Porsche CEO, Wendelin Wiedeking, now has a 27.4 percent stake in VW. And he intend to make this $5 Billion investment profitable. Wiedeking says that VW is a gold mine but "you have to dig day and night". Sounds a lot like Porsche will do a lot of digging into VW Research and Development labs for a first.

In case you had any doubts, Wiedeking has some nice words when talking about Lamborghini and Bugatti exotic fate: "no toys anymore". Expect lamborghini and bugatti to produce model under the $100.000 mark quite soon, or even to be back on the marker on their own, leaving the sport car market open wider than ever to the demonic 911s.
