100 Sports Car Mergers

From Porsche Smartphones to Ferrari Furniture These Hybrids are Opulent

— May 8, 2012 — Autos
Built-for-speed vehicles aren't the only products that have gotten the stamp of approval from some of the biggest names in the automotive industry, as evidenced by the assortment of sports car mergers that have taken place over the years.

Luxury car makers have gotten their hands into some interesting business collaborations that venture far outside of steering wheels and engine blocks, shown by the influx of high priced tech gadgets that have car lovers and tech nerds alike salivating. Elaborate smartphones that ring in at the cost of the average person's yearly salary are among one of the electronics deals that Ferrari and Porsche have given their name to.

Even building designs have gotten the auto touch with condo buildings and office furniture sporting some high-end automobile logos sure to induce jealousy.
