Mergers and acquisitions are a hot topic this week, so we'd be remiss if we didn't mention that Volkswagen has ramped up plans to buy out its sporty sister, Porsche. You might recall that VW's takeover is rolling out in stages; during the first phase, VW had planned to purchase a 42% stake in Porsche, but that figure has now jumped to 49.9%, which will come at a cost of €3.9 billion ($5.8 billion). Sounds like Porsche's reputation for speed and aggression may have met its match. [WorldCarFans]
