Porsche Automobil Holding SE is a listed holding company. It holds the majority of the ordinary shares in the Volkswagen Group, one of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers. The Group comprises twelve brands from seven European countries: Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Audi, SEAT, ŠKODA, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, Ducati, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, Scania and MAN. In addition to this anchor shareholding, Porsche SE intends to make further strategic investments along the automotive value chain. This comprises the entire spectrum of basic technologies geared to supporting the development and production process through to vehicle- and mobility-related services.
In September 2014 Porsche Automobil Holding SE acquired a stake of around ten percent in the US technology company INRIX Inc., Kirkland, Washington. The acquisition is the first step towards creating a portfolio of investments complementing the existing shareholding in Volkswagen AG.
