Volkswagen's master plan is all about numbers, being the biggest and baddest automaker out there. That's why it isn't any surprise to hear that Volkswagen might be bringing Italdesign Giugiaro under its wing, with the goal of becoming the World’s car maker by 2018.

With Giugiaro in VW’s stable, the company is rumored to make full use of Giugiaro’s designers and engineers in rolling out new models (including upgrades) for the ten brands under its umbrella. For this year along, the VW group plans to release 60 new models.

Italdesign Giugiaro was co-founded by Giorgetto Giugiaro in 1968 and currently has up to 975 employees and about 800 computer aided design terminals. The company has helped to design some of VW group’s models in the past and they include (not limited to) VW's Golf Mk1, Passat Mk1, Scirocco Mk1, Audi 80, Seat Ibiza Mk1, Toledo Mk1 and Mk2.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
