Word in the press has it that the charismatic Thomas Bscher has tendered his resignation as the head of Bugatti. Thomas Bscher joined the VAG Group in 2003 to head the EB16.4 Veyron project as it had fallen into issues under it’s previous leader.
It is said that Thomas Bscher like others in the group has fallen out with the current VW head Martin Winterkorn. It’s believed that he wanted funds to create a second Bugatti car, one that would probably replace the current ageing Bugatti range.
It seems that the current VW boards sympathy to Porsche could be the key issue inside the upper management at the group. VW and Porsche have always had a tie with each other, but rumor has it that the Porsche family are looking to control more of the VW board, and I’m personally not sure if that is a good or bad thing. After all who needs another Caymen/Toureg?
