Aapl as many others lives on excelent branding management. Sure they have plenty of cash to buy one or several plants all around world, or even built a new their own set of industrial actives. They are not dumb to follow that path. Branding needs more branding, strong names. Do you want a strong name? PORSCHE. Yep, solid german reputation, they still built dream cars, they have the skills, expertise to make a common ground w/ other solid brand as AAPL. Thats why I sugested VW, where Porsche has more than 50% control interest.
