Wolfgang Bernhard is certainly well admired by the boys in Daimler. According to rumors, he is presently being prepared to take control at the Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz automotive unit. If these reports are true, the important question would be, when would Bernhard replace the current head Dieter Zetsche.
According to some reports from Germany, the transition would happen much sooner than expected. Daimler on the other hand is denying those rumors and branded them as fictional and without foundation. Last February 2010, Bernhard was elevated to lead production and purchasing at Mercedes. Also during that time, Zetsche’s contract was extended till 2013.
It seems that if Bernhard is going to take the top seat of the company’s automotive unit, it’s not going to take place until 2013. So it is still early to start hoping for an AMB-branded Tomahawk motorcycle.
