VW. Not sure about that but I know Audi and Horsch were never separate makes.

That's not the case - Horch came first, founded by August Horch. Later on during a dispute with Horch management he was forced out. He went and opened a second company and called it Audi. The two companies existed independently for a long time and both became part of Auto Union in the early 1930s.
