The luxury carmaker said in a statement that it wanted to see the "creation of an integrated car manufacturing group". VW hailed the decision of the Porsche and Piech families, owners of Porsche group, to create the merger . It means a Porsche takeover of VW will not happen. The format of the new group will be decided in the next four weeks. Talks will now take place between the two carmakers, VW's home state of Lower Saxony, and employee representatives. The state's president Christian Wulff said in a statement: "We are ready for discussions, which must be carried out quickly." Brand independence The move should unite 10 brands under one roof, Porsche said. Nine of the brands are owned by VW, and the other is the Porsche sports car brand. "In the final structure 10 brands shall stand below an integrative leading company alongside each other, whereby the independence of all brands and explicitly also of Porsche shall be ensured," a Porsche statement said.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
