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 <> wrote in message > It is quite odd that a small country like Sweden has two major car companies > with so little in common.
