From Jayski
"UPDATE: The latest entry into America's most popular motorsports series could very well be the first ever from Germany. According to Matthias Muller, the newly appointed CEO of Porsche, Volkswagen Group -- his employer's parent company -- is considering entering NASCAR. Should it follow through, Volkswagen would be just the second foreign automaker to participate [full-time] in NASCAR. Toyota was first, entering the competition in 2007 [actually Jaguar and others have run a few races, with Jaguar winning a race. Volkswagen actually ran one race in 1953]. The German automaker will reportedly begin discussions with NASCAR officials once the current season ends in late November.(Motortrend)(10-1-2010)
UPDATE: A NASCAR official confirmed the sanctioning body has a meeting scheduled with Volkswagen in January. While Volkswagen competition representative Hans-Joachim Stuck emphatically denied any interest in American stock cars at Homestead one year ago, in a recent interview with Financial Times Deutschland the former racer discussed possibly taking the brand to Formula One and NASCAR. Reports earlier this month confirmed VW wouldn't pursue F1 after all. When VW unveiled its new assembly plant in Chattanooga, Tenn., in September, Dr. Martin Winterkorn, chairman of the board of management at Volkwagen AG, announced to 700-plus dealers from the U.S. and Canada that he aspired to take his brand "to the top of the auto industry by 2018." Certainly, NASCAR's "marketing (platform)" could be the perfect vehicle to accomplish that task. VW holds the distinction of being the largest automaker in Europe. In the U.S., however, recent tallies from October show VW of America only holding a 2.1 market share of cars sold, according to the Wall Street Journal"

Volkswagen will probably only last a few years if they do get in.

Why? It's not going to last. Plus this rumor was going around a month or two ago as well.

Moved to appropriate forum.

They did say the same thing about toyota but think about it this way. The only reason Toyota became successful in NASCAR is because Gibbs switched. You need a prestigeous team to switch or they will be out in a heartbeat. The only somewhat prestigeous team that will probably even thinking about switching is Penske.

Or DEI-Ganassi. They could be that big team, you know they debated switching to Ford. They might want to follow Gibbs's footsteps and be the 1st big VW team.

No way. They are doing really well with Chevy and they would lose a lot of fans and a lot of respect.

VW AG isn't retarded, they didn't become the world's 3rd largest Auto company by happenstance. They're not going to join Nascar without a major team(s). In an era where money talks and brand loyalty means absolutely squat (except maybe to Roush) anybody could switch for the right price. And they may do what Toyota did, start in a lower series, build some momentum and credibility before jumping to cup.


I drive an Audi, my favorite car company is Porsche, so this would be a welcome addition for me.
