Now that is scary, especially that one line:

the product portfolio is insufficient to keep up with technology advances and increasingly stringent fuel economy standards.

you really want scary, check out how much money Sergio makes annualy compared to other CEOs... which is ironic because he's the only one crying that his company can't make money... Give back Sergio, give back...

Meanwhile Toyota is one of the brads at the top, yet look what that guy is making.

Funny how that works.

Here lets bring some numbers into the conversation, courtesy of BI

http://www.businessinsider.com/r-fca...-merger-2015-6

Quote:
FCA's Chrysler brand sold 26 percent of its vehicles using subprime financing. The industry average is 12.7 percent sales to subprime borrowers. FCA's Jeep and Ram brands are both below that level.

FCA spent 1.5 percent of its annual revenue on research and development last year, compared with 4.8 percent for Ford and 4.7 percent for GM, according to non-public data shown to Reuters by a source on condition of anonymity.

FCA's North American profit margins last year were 4 percent, roughly half of those reported by GM and Ford. FCA said it plans to boost North American margins to 5.5 percent to 6 percent this year, still below the levels its Detroit rivals are projecting.

The world's No. 7 automaker lags its rivals in the race to hit the U.S. fuel economy target of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. In 2014, FCA's U.S. fleet averaged 21.1 miles per gallon, last among major automakers and nearly 8 miles per gallon behind the leading company, Japan's Mazda Motor Corp.

That's horrible, they need to get their priorities straight and then maybe can they send the brand on a direction they'd be favorable of.

I think that a larger focus on partnerships and sharing development costs could work as well as maybe some mergers if it feels right. The development partnerships keep a greater degree of variety and creativity (no echo chamber) while sill cutting down on development costs.

That and brings together combinations of things we wouldn't have otherwise seen that is favored big time by the consumer. Like... the Scion FR-S with a Subaru Boxer engine.

Problem with building a new car is that they're never know if it's going to be a hit or miss until they actually get it out there and all that right? I mean sure, there's market research and everything, but theory is one thing and actually seeing the car in front of you and what it can or can't do... Let's just say don't count your chickens until your eggs have hatched eh?
