Fiat wants part of Chrysler. GM wants part of Fiat. GM wants to get rid of Saab, and Fiat may be interested, although Saab says it isn't talking to Fiat right now. China's Geely might like to have Saab, too, according to one story; according to another, it's not interested.
The Swedish government doesn't want Saab either, nor does it want Volvo -- and that's an issue because Ford wants to sell that brand. Who's up for that? Well, depending on what rumor you hear, it could be BMW, Geely, Chery, Dongfeng or Chongqing.
Saturn's also up for grabs, potential parties unknown save for an investment group that includes a number of Saturn retailers. And now Porsche and Volkswagen are engaged in some strange little dance that would see them integrate, yet remain independent -- kind of like those "open marriages" that we all read about in Penthouse, or at least on the covers of those tabloids by the grocery store checkout counter.
As Bugs Bunny used to say, Ya can't tell a knight from a day without a program! I sure hope somebody draws up a comprehensive road map soon, because I certainly can't tell what's going on.
