Porsche increases stake in Rimac, opens door for Bugatti takeover

Volkswagen Group subsidiary Porsche has increased its stake in Croatian brand Rimac Automobili, opening the door for a long-rumoured takeover at Bugatti. Last year CarAdvice reported an alleged agreement between the two companies could see Porsche incrementally increase its stake in Rimac to as much as 49 per cent by mid-2021. In return, Rimac would acquire the Bugatti name from the Volkswagen Group without money swapping hands.

The human race has spent decades perfecting 0-100km/h sprint times and figuring out how to generate maximum outputs with minimal weight. As we embark on a new decade of development, it’s safe to say the quest for perfection is far from over.
