No Chery-Chrysler Deal

This piece from Forbes.com announces the end of negotiations between China's Chery Automotive and Chrysler. I'm disappointed with this news, as I was excited to see what might come of a privately held Chrysler combining forces directly with a Chinese auto maker (despite the fact that I owned Geely stock!).

Note at the end of the article that Ford may be shopping Volvo to Chinese state-owned Changan Automobile Group. Make up your own mind about that one, but it just feels wrong!!

The Tesla Founders Blog recently speculated about the DongFeng Corvette and the Tata Mustang. It seems they were right on the mark.
