Volkswagen AG's sports-car maker Porsche AG started trading on the stock market in Germany on Thursday with an initial price of 84 euros ($81.78) per preferred share.

Parent company Volkswagen created 911 million Porsche shares in a reference to its iconic 911 sports car model, with the stock divided in nonvoting preferred shares and ordinary shares with voting rights. It is selling 25% of Porsche preferred shares, or about 12.5% of the entire company in the IPO.
