RUMOUR: VW WANTS TO BUY FIAT

The Agnellis control Fiat, which is the new owner of the Chrysler Group. In essence, it appears Volkswagen is intent on buying the whole shebang.

VW chairman Ferdinand Piech has, since about 2009, expressed an interest in buying Alfa Romeo from Fiat. But the Italian company has been spurning him. In response he’s often said “VW is a very patient company”. So if the latest banter is true, it appears Piech is no longer just after Alfa, but the whole company consisting of; Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Lancia and of course Ferrari.

Apparently the Agnellis are quite keen on the deal, as long as Ferrari and perhaps Maserati are not a part of it. Word is they reckon the two luxury brands are worth holding on to, rather than the others.
