German side, presented by the Dr. Wolfgang Porsche gave the Qatar delegation a warm welcome as a new member of the Porsche shareholder family and they said that this day is already historical for both sides. Maybe this is because for the first time in the history of the company, part of ordinary Porsche shares are in hand of external investors. To this day, the all shares belonged to the family members of Porsche and Piech.

Sheik Hamad ibn Jassim ibn Jabir Al-Thani emphasized that Qatar considers itself a strategic investor who has great interest in the long-term positive development of Porsche. “Porsche ranks among the most valuable automobile brands in the world. We are proud to be a part of this sports car manufacturer and its rich tradition and history. Through our trust-based collaboration with the family shareholders, we will help ensure that the success story of Porsche, and, in the future, of Volkswagen continues to be written,” explained the Prime Minister.
