Sources told Reuters Newsagency recently that Porsche's debt was "clearly" higher than the10 billion euros that had so far been revealed by the German sports car maker.

As a result of the immense debt, Der Spiegel magazine reported on Saturday that Volkswagen would pay 8 billion euros to Porsche SE to buy its fully owned sports car business, Porsche AG.

The two companies are set to decide on the issue tomorrow in Germany.
