Pininfarina brings more than a decade of economic troubles. The automotive sector has changed significantly in recent years and manufacturers every time they opt more for design and build its own cars. This has led to a critical situation not only to Pininfarina, but also to other key brands of the Italian car industry as Giugiaro (absorbed by Volkswagen) or Bertone.
signature Pininfarina has been said that Mahindra & Mahindra is interested in buying of the company and that may be an agreement in the next few weeks. This is not the first time that Mahindra have shown interest by Pininfarina, as it did in march of this year. It is hoped that, finally, if Mahindra is left with the company, you can revive it or refocus their activity as it did after the acquisition of SsangYong.

The interests of Mahindra & Mahindra by Pininfarina are clear. The indians want take advantage of the experienced design studio of the brand for their vehicles, and SsangYong have more modern designs and innovative with the ability to obtain better results in markets like the european one. It is evident that models such as the Mahindra XUV 500 (header image) have a design on the left for you to Polish quite a few elements.
of course, it is expected that a firm as reputed as Pininfarina does not close doors and follow offering their designs to other companies, not only in the automotive sector.
