According to a recent report, Volkswagen is interested in buying Lotus.

Details are limited, but Reuters is quoting two unidentified sources who say the automaker is open to taking a minority or majority stake in Lotus. There is even speculation that the stake could eventually lead to a full takeover.

A Volkswagen spokesperson declined to comment, but rumors have been swirling about Lotus going up for sale. Parent company DRB-Hicom has said they are committed to the company, but the recent firing of CEO Dany Bahar has left a lot of unanswered questions.
