Documentary about a more serious subject: The ability of old car makers to meet the changing demands of the customers in the future.

No, for a classic car enthusiast there's no irrelevanter question, than if the maker of the own car is still existing.
We don't need them.

It's 27 1/2 years ago, that I made the last official order for a K 70 part at a VW dealer.

no, that part -a windscreen rubber- I got indeed. The very last original one.

But the repro-project for windscreen rubbers lasted indeed about 25 years...

The ability of any car manufacturer to keep up with the changing times is vested entirely with the manufacturer. Among the oldest of car firms is Peugeot, still out there, still popular and still selling. I don’t have any particular liking for their designs or their philosophy, but I do have immense respect for their ability to keep up with the changing times. I suppose I could spend the rest of the day burbling on about why Company A survives or why Company B has gone, and I am certain that there would be multiple reasons to cite.

All you have to do is compare let’s say Ford with let’s say Studebaker or Lea Francis or Squire.

You don’t need me to say any more, do you?

@jfs: well, the reasons, why one company survives for decades, even centuries and other companies are dying after some months, are not really many and also quite simple.

a) offering products, the customers aren't
interested in.

b) uneconomical structures. No ability to
calculate the prices, that you earn money

c) incapable owners/employees

d) outside effects as war, defect
social/makro-economic/political
structures

All other reasons are variations of those four.
