Porsche is acquiring a major stake in Greyp, a Croatian electric-bike maker linked to its affiliate Rimac Automobili, with an intention to expand mobility choices beyond sports cars. The luxury automaker's venture capital arm already had a stake in the bike company of about 10 per cent and now the former wants to boost its holding following a takeover offer from a third-party investor.

Mate Rimac, founder of electric supercar Rimac, and other Greyp founders will retain a minority stake in the electric-bike firm. The takeover is expected to be finalised at the end of the year, stated a report by Bloomberg.
