Re: Fiat to take over Opel & Vauxhall?

Vauxhall only exists today as a brand name - all their products are Opels. If this new Fiat/Opel company gets off the ground it will be the death knell for that brand name within a year, I predict. Sad, but then it's sad we don't have Austin, Morris, Standard, Triumph, Wolseley, Riley, Hillman, Singer, Humber, Sunbeam etc. either.
I just hope Fiat/Opel does not end up with the worst of each brand's characteristics instead of the best.

Re: Fiat to take over Opel & Vauxhall?

If they get Opel they will be careful to cherry pick. Probably the German government and the unions will prevent takeover, and so guarantee that Opel disappears completely, along with Vauxhall, Saab and even Volvo.

Re: Fiat to take over Opel & Vauxhall?

Go away. Fiat cars are better built than Opels so it would only benefit them but you obviously have no access to news channels as you would know Fiat pulled out months back from doing it.
Thanks ChrisUK thanked for this post

Re: Fiat to take over Opel & Vauxhall?

Re: Fiat to take over Opel & Vauxhall?

GM seems to having a change of heart over this and is looking to back out of the Magna deal. The US Govt isn't pleased with Magna's Russian partner.

Maybe if they did away with the Vauxhall brand the cars would be a few quid less because the costs with designing, toling and producing the separate bits for the two brands would be eliminated.

I think Fiat has enough on its hands with Chrysler.
