German prosecutors are investigating Porsche’s former chief executive Wendelin Wiedeking and other people close to the sports carmaker, alleging market manipulation and passing on inside information in their failed takeover attempt of Volkswagen.

Volkswagen is to pay ?3.3 billion ($4.7B) for a 42 percent stake in Porsche’s main production division, the two German carmakers said yesterday as they thrashed out more details of a move towards a full integration.

But even as the motoring press descends on Stuttgart to test drive the new car, the Panamera launch is being overshadowed by a bizarre feud in the company’s founding family that is starting to damage both Porsche and its sister company, VW. It’s a nasty, vindictive battle that, in keeping with bad cases of sibling rivalry, risks spiraling out of control and hurting everyone involved, including the shareholders, customers and workers at the two German automakers.
Iconic German automakers Volkswagen and Porsche have reached an agreement to merge operations — the latest move in an industry that has seen whiplash changes in recent weeks. The two companies have been in talks in recent weeks about merging manufacturing operations
