The Week in Reverse

So Chrysler’s in play – but no one but the hedge funds want it? Could Dieter just decide to keep it, a la smart? Or will the end result be Zetsche’s eviction from the CEO chair? Tune in this week for more of As the Pentastar Turns.

No one will want Ford either if their market share crashes to 10 percent – and that’s a real worry among analysts. It turns out you do need more than a Mustang every generation.

Hey, that “merger of equals” bullshit applies outside of cars, too!

Jim Morton, like we predicted, is positioning himself to run for governor of Tennessee. With Nissan “fixed” – and we use the term loosely – maybe he could set his sights on Wynonna’s hair?

At 60 years old, Saab’s turned to preventative cryogenics. The note they left: “Defrost us when ‘quirky’ will shift more than 100,000 units a year.”

Working with a nyet? TVR might be going back to Russians – the same Russians that sent it into receivership before the holidays.

The Pullman Benz: for the despot who needs Dom and hand grenade protection at autobahn speeds.

German TV networks are blinging it up for this year’s Academy Awards – and the stars are showing up in eco-friendly cars. The “inconvenient truth” of it all? Audi’s got it perfectly right by handing out R8s.

Meanwhile, TCC’s star vehicle is something more like this.

We’ll leave you this week with yet another trial balloon being floated by GM execs – that the Camaro chassis could spawn a new Cadillac superluxe sedan. Hot, right? We’ll let you know if it’s verifiable, possible, or just a big burst of air ASAP.

  1. In regards to the "Camaro" chassis spawning a new Cadillac sedan, remember that this platform was created by Holden in Australia, of which has the Commodore (change the nose and call it a Pontiac G8) and the Statesman/Caprice twins. These large sedans already come with the 6.0 liter V8 engines, so it wouldn't be too hard to modify the engine bay to squeeze in a larger engine. See www.holden.com.au to see what the Statesman and Caprice both look like.
