So, basically one bankrupt company (Faraday) working with another company that has a questionable future (FCA) outside of the merger.

I guess to negatives equals a positive?

I just have a bad feeling about this (to quote Han Solo).

Let's hope this creates some immediate products shown (ie Detroit Auto Show) with fast tracking to production in North America (within 12 months); cause 300, Challenger, Charger, Durango and Journey aren't getting any younger.

Well, NAIAS is in June starting in 2020, so if that's what we're waiting for we've got another 6 months.

Driven several of the Peugeot and Citroen cars and compact Minivans as rental cars in England. They are perfect transportation without excitement,efficiently designed and easy to live with/drive.

Not much of a plaudit, I know, but thats what the majority of people like.

Toyota built their brand around that logic. Problem is they had the QC to back it up; FCA? Not even close.
