Pininfarina family stake to be sold.
According to the reports, Tata Motors is touted to be among the forerunners for acquiring stake in Pininfarina.
Here is the link.
Pininfarina family stake to be sold - Tata potential suitor - Worldcarfans
do you all think its wise for Ratan Tata to acquire stake in Pininfarina after acquiring Jag and Land Rover brands? please voice your opinions.
IMHO, its worth a shot. Pininfarina helped Tata design Indica iirc. So the roots can be traced to late 90's. also, they have been pioneers in design of Maseratis and Ferraris. So i seriously think Tata Motors should take the plunge.
waiting for your comments.

Another move by Tata to extend its global presence. I think it is a good move as Designs carry a huge premium in today's age and this may give Tata a foot into one of the most famous design houses. I dont know if the deal will come through as Tata is already struggling with its JLR deal

Pininfarina will consider the buyer to be an equivalent lineage and credentials. Tatas DO fit the criteria and they've the financial muscle to get this through. As far as JLR financing is considered, they're yet to get the share of funds from UK officias, as mentioned in the deal commitment.
