Audi and Porsche have announced its engineers will collaborate and share vehicle architecture “to shape the mobility of the future”.
AUDI AND PORSCHE have announced they will work together on product development and platform sharing “to shape the mobility of the future together”.
In a short statement, the two companies said, “Through the effective application of development capacities, additional scope is to be created for the topics of electrification, digitisation and autonomous driving. This will enhance competitiveness so that the two companies can optimally utilise the opportunities for future model generations and better meet the challenges”.
“The best brains of both companies will together set the technical course for the future,” stated Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG.
“We are united by many shared values, above all, by our pursuit of the best solutions and the best offerings for our customers.”
“Together, we will make faster progress in the race for the mobility of the future. We will utilise the expertise of both companies and take advantage of synergies,” said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Board of Management of Porsche AG.
“We will cooperate wherever it makes sense. But we will also be very careful to maintain the differentiation between our brands. A Porsche is always a Porsche, and that will remain so in the future.”
While the two brands have already collaborated closely on SUV development, this announcement will focus on defining specific areas of cooperation across the brands out to 2025.
