Honda-Isuzu should have happened long ago. Rather than simply swap cars, they should have developed them together. They would have owned the most hard edged, reliable, and fuel efficient cars in the market place. Both of their cars are reliable as hell, so Honda can help Isuzu with refinement, and Isuzu can help bring Honda a tough image. Ditch all that cute stuff.
Lotus-Isuzu. Yes, they developed Geo Storms (Isuzu Gemini) and Isuzu Impulses (Isuzu Piazza) together, but those old Isuzu concept cars (that were codeveloped with Lotus) never came about. That's too bad.
Honda-Toyota. Go ahead, design the most refined and cute, and sloppy handling vehicles that no other company can compete with. Reliability and fuel efficiency would be unmatched.
Nissan-Audi. I dunno, I just think it would be a good fit. Fast, fast, fast cars with prototype ideas that will be unmatched by other manufacturers. Cars would probably be able to hover above land if they got together.
Chrysler-Mercedes. Oh wait, that's already happened.
Suzuki-Yamaha. Become the next Honda, and make a bunch of small cars that are fuel efficient, quick, cheap, lightweight, and last forever. And they should have the best audio systems.
