I beg to differ...I understand thay porsche have 'options' on the 74% of VAG shares. therefore don't own a controlling stake unless they exercise them.
...BTW, the early RS models were developed by Renn Sport, hence "RS"
Looks like you're right... or maybe we both are, because RennSport are the performance tuners for porsche and hence th 911 RS (RennSport) and RSR versions!!I beg to differ
Built by Quattro GmBH in Neckarsulm at a factory quite separate from the common-or-garden Ingolstadt Audis, the RS4 was the spiritual successor to the 315bhp RS2, a car that was developed as much by Porsche as by Audi and had been a minor hit in the early nineties. With 380bhp at its disposal from a twin-turbocharged 2.7-litre V6, the RS4 majored in brute force. It was introduced in early 2000 to a disbelieving general public who soon realised that here was a car that was quicker than a Porsche 911 for £13,000 less and which could act as something more than an extravagant plaything.The RS4 sold well, but was later dogged by accusations that the alloy wheels could distort, leading to potentially dangerous blowouts. Audi UK even staged an event in October 2001 at Millbrook test track where an RS4 was driven at high speed over concrete blocks without the wheels failing and went to the effort of offering alternate rims for anybody not satisfied with the results of the demo. Sales of the limited run RS4 finally ended in early 2002.
