Report: Porsche and Audi are clamoring over platforms

Automobile Magazine reports that Audi and Porsche are in a little bit of a bind over agreements with modular platforms.

According to the article, Porsche is a bit ticked at Audi because the Ingolstadt-automaker rejected Porsche’s latest Modular Standard Platform for adoption as a way to provide a backbone for the next generation Audi A6, A7 and A8. Porsche isn’t satisfied either with Audi’s own MLB Evo platform, designed for the former Auto Union’s large crossover lineup in the Volkswagen Group because they find inadequacies with the suspension system, the electronic architecture, and limited powertrain flexibility.

Oh the perks of corporate culture…

But this is more than just a one-way street as Audi is in a bind with the Zuffenhausen sports car maker because Audi and Lamborghini aren’t satisfied with the proposed platform by Porsche, which would be destined for the next generation 2021 Lamborghini Huracan and the 2022 Audi R8. Lamborghini instead is adamant about producing their own carbon fiber chassis.

Either way, Volkswagen is not happy with the disagreements and like a parent rearing kids, the higher-ups will have to make the calls and force Audi and Porsche to work together.
