Porsche: are four doors better than two?

Porsche's management has given the go-ahead for the development and production of a new coupe that will represent the company's second major departure from its core small sports car focus. While success of its SUV model, the Cayenne, augurs well for this latest design, the new Panamera is nevertheless something of a gamble for an automaker as conservative and yet successful as Porsche.

Porsche/Volkswagen: stake building raises key questions

Porsche may represent the last stronghold between Germany's largest carmaker, Volkswagen, and the cruel forces of the global economy. However, convincing investors to pump E3 billion into a company beset by inefficiency and low profit margins will be a tall order for Porsche, and there can be no guarantee that this all-German alliance will restore competitiveness.

Peugeot: waiting for the next generation

Despite revealing a slump in profits, the outlook remains rosy for Peugeot [UG.PA] ahead of the launch of a number of new models. While the company will be hoping its new models will give it the same sales boost as rival Renault [RNO.PA] enjoyed with its new range, the underlying strength of the Peugeot marque alone should see it rapidly bounce back.

Peugeot Citroen: another dent in UK manufacturing

Peugeot Citroen's move to axe 850 UK jobs has been heavily criticized by trade unions. However, it must be seen in the context of exogenous factors, principally the relocation of car manufacturing jobs to countries with lower labor costs. This globalizing trend cannot be reversed, but with a benign economic climate and low unemployment, there is no need for Britons to panic at Peugeot's choice.

Peugeot Citroen approves use of biofuels in some models

In the UK, Peugeot Citroen has approved the use of Morrison's B30 biodiesel in its diesel vehicles built since 1998.
