It would also give Porsche even greater exposer in smaller cities that have a VW or Audi dealer, but no Porsche dealer in town. And I think that VW, Audi, (and isn't Lamborghini part of that group now) would make great partners for Porsche.

Currently, many VW/Audi dealers also sell Porsches. But VW is in financial trouble and in danger of being taken over. VW is considering spinning off Audi as a "poison pill" defense, since Audi is the crown jewel. Ford is sniffing around VW, so you might eventually be able to take your 911 to a Ford dealer for service !!! You might even see Ford parts in Porsches. Buyers of Aston Martins have been thrilled to see an interior that looks a lot like a Taurus.
