How about some serious rumour-mongoring??
Fact: Today, GM has sold half of it’s 20% ownership stake of Fuji Heavy Industries (let’s call them Subaru, shall we) to……wait for it……Toyota!
The cash will be welcome given the recent downgrade of GM’s stock and the fact that the investment in Fuji hasn’t exactly rocked the planet in terms of ROI.
OK, so – rumour? There has been whispers in various quarters about the fact that senior Saab people in North America expressed quite a bit of discomfort with the current state of the 9-6x, to be built on the Tribeca platform in Subaru’s plant in Indiana.
It’s all but officially confirmed that there would be no more Saaburu co-operation on another 9-2x. Could this transaction signal the end of the beginning for the 9-6x?
Let’s wait and see, huh?
