Volkswagen Sets 10 Year Goal to Catch up to Toyota

VW CEO Martin Winterkorn has made a pledge to close the gap between Toyota and VW. The automaker has set a goal of ten years to catch up to Toyota in terms of productivity and profit. Porsche CEO Wendelin Wiedeking also backs the plan. Wiedeking sees Toyota as the benchmark.

Porsche currently holds a 31% stake in VW, but there are rumors that the percentage could increase to 51%.

The 10-year plan is likely to be similar to the plan Winterkorn instilled when he was CEO of Audi. The target for the financial and sales goals has been set to 2018.
