Volkswagen’s founding story is one of controversy as Adolf Hitler had requested that the company be formed so that affordable mass-produced cars can become available to the German public.
In 1937 the Nazi party went to Porsche and asked them to design a simple car which was then manufactured under the Volkswagen name.
The following large brands were taken over by Volkswagen over the years with each one focused on a separate market of its own:
- Porsche, a German sports car brand that focuses on 2 seat sports cars and high-end sports SUVs.
- Skoda, a budget producer of cars originally from the Czech Republic.
- Scania, a manufacturer of commercial vehicles such as trucks.
- Lamborghini, a super-car brand known for its 2 seat large volume engine models
