Re: Volkswagen Reportedly Interested In Acquiring Fiat.

For those of you that haven't heard VW just de-throned GM as #2 global automobile manufacturer. The only thing stopping them is Toyota. Perhaps this acquisition has another purpose...

BTW. I would have no reservations about another German company owning Chrysler. I currently do business with numerous OEMS: German, American, Asian... As long as they listen to the desires / needs of the local market everything should be good.

Re: Volkswagen Reportedly Interested In Acquiring Fiat.

From a business point of view, this would be a difficult acquisition to justify. VW's brands closely overlap with Fiat and, with the recent listing on the nyse, and the continued sales success of the FCA brands, the price to VW would be hugely expensive. Other than sheer volumes, the only immediate benefit to VW would be Ram and to a lesser extent Jeep.

I would be very surprised if this happens.
