But this is the limits for VAG they will not develop a single model unless there is a business case from the other VW marques making the project more cost effective. Porsche is if you use the term the stepchild to a disliked step parent. Which is why they have gone out of their way to prevent complete assimilation.
Audi are not happy about the R4 and will no doubt interpret R4 into the next TT.

But stories like this are common news known within the German car industry.
Exactly, furthermore all future vehicles of the VAG (Volkswagen AG) will share the MQB "Modulare Queer Baukasten" translated "modular transversal toolkit".

Porsche however will not be using the MQB, so there will be no cooperation engineeringwise take place with VW/Audi
