"We are continuing our careful and detailed study of the off-road market, with the intention to possibly develop and produce our own sporting off-roader together with a partner," Wiedeking told reporters attending the International Auto Show in Geneva, Switzerland.

German magazine Stern reported that Volkswagen and Porsche are planning an off-road vehicle together.
