Chrysler-Fiat Will become a Global Powerhouse

J. Travis-Gm Chrysler News

As Fiat SpA CEO Sergio Marchionne is in the process of wrapping up the Fiat Chrysler deal, he is also working on purchasing GM Operations overseas, Saab, Opel(Saturn) and building a global network quickly.

If Fiat is going after GM-Opel operations, it may target some of GM's domestic brands like Saturn and Pontiac. Remember the Opel vehicles and Saturn vehicles are on the same platform....?

The new Chrysler-Fiat line up of vehicle brands could be quit impressive:
Alfa Romeo,Fiat,Ferrari,Maserati,Jeep,Chrysler,Dodge,Saab,Opel(Saturn),Joint ventures with Kia,Mitsubishi,TaTa and Nissan.

By time the smoke clears Chrysler-Fiat will be larger than GM and only second in the World to Toyota! Which they could easily surpass Toyota if the auto markets pick up around the world.

I would guess Sergio believes in go big or go home.....

After it is said and done, does it mean we will get our medical and prescription coverages back? We of the retirees should not be punished for Chrysler going chapter 11.
If Chrysler would want to be the no 1 automaker in the whole wide world and leave the others in the dust, I have a suggestion....a magnetic car that will produce its own electricity and at the same time it will create more power to the magnets while the vehicle is out on the hgwy and at the same time there will be 0 polution and no sound at all, no leaks of oil from the vehicle and it will be a greener vehicle around. By doing this, this will shoot us ahead of any automobile industry out there and LET CHRYSLER SOAR...
