Volkswagen to purchase the Nurburgring?
As reported earlier this year the Nurburgring is for sale
. Reports state a number of automakers have contacted the German government about the purchase and the government would most likely sell to a German automaker. So who would it be? Porsche apparently has expressed interest as have entities within the VW Group. Volkswagen has the money and ponying up the reportedly $165 million dollar asking price would not be all that difficult for the giant automaker.
So who will end up with the track? Likely the highest bidder and Volkswagen already shelled out a lot of cash for a track with Porsche purchasing the Nardo ring last year
. What another couple hundred million dollars though to own the 'ring?
