Well this is a little bit unusual. But we know that both Scania and Porsche are under VW Ag. And yes its true. Scania and Porsche Engineering are teaming up to develop new truck cabs.
“In Porsche Engineering we have found a partner that shares Scania’s values and views on development and production. We will develop a cab frame together that is optimised for Scania’s requirements on styling and functionality, as well as for rational production,” says Per Hallberg, Executive Vice President and head of Research and Development, Purchasing at Scania.
Porsche Engineering Group provides highly advanced engineering services in areas such as material analysis and structural testing, as well as design of production equipment and logistics. Customers include both automotive companies and other industries.
Porsche spokesman Dirk Erat said: “This is not the first time Porsche Engineering has been contracted to work for a truckmaker. It already has been involved in some work for the industry, such as in Eastern Europe.”
