In the news: Martin Winterkorn Brad Nortman Jersey , Volkswagen?s new chief executive officer has released a statement saying that Europe?s largest carmaker and manufacturer of quality Volkswagen Cabrio parts intends to fill ?lucrative market niches? with all new models as he tries to reduce excess capacity and boost profit.

According to Stephen Pope head of equity research at Cantor Fitzgerald in London, ?I am pleased that Winterkorn is looking at gaps in the VW lineup as the auto market is about niche designs as opposed to small-medium-large. The difficulty lies in the fact that the niche areas are already crowded.''
