VW published their numbers for the first half 2011.... after the record year 2010 VW is still growing at lightning speed.... in the first 6months they toped the win of complete 2010...

The first time ever that VW sold over 4million cars in 6months currently only toped by GM.
They sold from Jan to June 2011 4.133million cars thats +14.1% more than 2010, again VW is much faster growing than the world market (+6.1%)

VW sales world wide by regions
north america +21.2% (USA +20.4%)
south america +10.9%
asia/pacific +19.5%
china +16.4%
india +217.2%
europe +9.3%
west europe without Germany +5.5%
central and east europe +28.9%
Germany +9.3%
world market 12.4% (11.7% 2010)

their brands
VW +11.8%
Audi +17.7%
Skoda +20.1%
Seat +2.5%
VW commercial vehicles(without Scania) +29.0%

money talks 01-06 2011
win after tax 6.1 billion Euro (3.2billion more than first half 2010)
win befor tax 8.2 billion Euro (5.6billion more than first half 2010)
turn over 77.8billion Euro (+25.8%)
cash flow 8.4billion Euro (+16.1%)
net liquidity 19.4billion Euro (+11.1%)

all numbers are only from VW, Audi, Skoda, Seat and VW commercial vehicles excluding Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, Scania and MAN

VW will sell 2011 most likely the first time ever more than 8million cars/year in their company history and with the hughe ammount of money to play with in their pocket I am curious what car company they want to eat... Piech still woud love to buy Alfa Romeo

Impressive numbers, fairly sure they're gonna be number one soon.  Would buying Alfa not clash a bit with Audi in their line-up though?

Silly as this seems, I could see them taking over PSA.  PSA aren't "massive", but they're fairly big players these days, and a bit of VW quality control would make a big difference there, IMO.  Kinda baffles me that PSA's reputation for reliability is apparently that bad, yet they still sell zillions of cars here in the UK, seemingly getting stronger and stronger (though they do promote a lot of good deals, a lot of people in the UK don't buy their cars outright, they buy them on finance, PSA do a lot of 0% APR for 3 or 4 year deals, along with the free insurance/servicing/thousands off list price even before the buyer enters negotiations, etc.)
