G.M. and Chrysler Explore Merger

General Motors is in preliminary talks about a possible merger with Chrysler, a deal that could drastically remake the landscape of the auto industry by reducing the Big Three of Detroit automakers to the Big Two.

The talks between G.M. and Cerberus Capital Management, the private equity firm that owns Chrysler, began more than a month ago, and the negotiations are not certain to produce a deal. Two people close to the process said the chances of a merger were "50-50" as of Friday and would most likely still take weeks to work out.

Re: G.M. and Chrysler Explore Merger.

And with all that surplus capacity, both with truck heavy line ups, nothing stellar in the range in terms of Chrysler cars and maybe only minivans and the Jeep name to really bring to the table, I can't see it working.

All they can really do is share a lot of platforms and componentry to keep costs down, but that takes for ever to integrate and by then it'll be too late........for Chrysler

Re: G.M. and Chrysler Explore Merger.

Quite frankly, I was hoping that Daimler would have brought up the quality and perception of quality of the Chrysler products when they owned them to meet the Japanese products head on. I do not think anyone believes that occurred - even the guys on Top Gear...:notme:

So, knowing that kind of mind meld can not be expected, and having some knowledge of the Chrysler and GM specifications and customer requirements, this would be a incredible merge to witness from a supplier standpoint.

Would they do PSO's on GM parts? Holy cow! I can't see it.:cool:

Excellent points from Andy and Bob!

They better get their sh*t together real quick or both will be doomed...
