This seems to be a pivot away from Europe and definitively towards China. It will be interesting to see if GM place more engineering resources in China over the long haul.

GM made a brilliant tactical decision. Opel contributed nothing to GM that GM can't now do now on its own.

PSA deal to acquire Proton is a "done deal":

http://www.autonews.com/article/2017...303139952/1128

Related, from the same article, when FCA suggested VW might acquire the struggling automaker:

"We are not ready for talks about anything ... we have other problems," VW CEO Matthias Mueller told Reuters, adding: "I haven't seen Marchionne for months."

No manufacturer in their right mind wants all of FCA. The ONLY part of any value is Jeep and Ram.

My guess is Marchionne has offers for those brands but not for the rest.

Dodge and Chrysler were cash raped and are being left for dead.

Marchionne started off rebuilding Maserati and then got bored and decided to rebuild Alfa Romeo. Now both brands are aimed at the same market and both will require tens of billions to rebuild if all goes well.

Then there is Fiat that has no up-to-date platforms nor class leading models.

Let's not mention Lancia.
