30 years on, the Mercedes-Benz 500 E proves the power of partnership | Hagerty Media

Competing automakers team up on projects more often than you might think. Sometimes, an OEM wants to share development costs of pricey new battery-electric vehicles (GM and Honda, for example), or maybe one marque really wants to revive a hallowed sports car but needs a platform to use, which is how Toyota joins forces with BMW and voila, the Supra/Z4 happens.

“Porsche, a company that was still years away from the water-cooled sports cars”…
The water-cooled 928 appeared in the mid-late 1970’s, but that’s PAST, not future.
Also; “Merc” is generally understood to mean Mercury. Try the accepted “MB”.
Otherwise, a great and fascinating article.
