Also, Volvo's recent inline engines (850/70 series, 40 series, 80 series) are the product of a joint design effort with Porsche. -rdo russell.ollienopsamnet Johannes H Andersen <johsnopsamsafish.com> wrote in message news:389B5E67.5D723630nopsamsafish.com... > It is quite odd that a small country like Sweden has two major car companies > with so little in common.
