Is not a secret anymore that Aston Martin is struggling lately. Its aim is to double sales by 2023 – hopping to go up to 14,000 units – but until then the company posted a 13.5 million-pound ($17.4 million) pre-tax loss. Now, is being rumored that the Canadian billionaire and Formula One team owner Lawrence Stroll wants to take over the British supercar maker. If this will happen or not we still can’t tell for sure, but since the rumor started, Aston Martin shares rose 17%.
An report coming from AutoCar says that Stroll wants to take advanted of Aston Martin’s low stock price, but that he is hopping to make huge profit because of the company’s new DBX. If that move will be a good idea remains to be seen, but the market right now is asking for more and more SUVs, so he might have the right idea here.
The same report says that Aston Martin had no comment on the subject, so only time will tell!
