the end for Lancia, and probably Maserati, the latter at least within the new group. The only things left today of those iconic brands worth buying are the logo’s. Lancia already only on the Italian market with a motorized supermarket buggy and Maserati making .. yes... what... cars.. not Maserati’s anymore. Alfa hopefully will get to use another of its 9 lives.

in Japan they should only keep the Jeep and the 500 and Alfa Romeo, regretfully killed in Japan by sub standard dealer networks and completely incompetent marketing and sales.

the new group can redraw the entire Peugeot Citroen line up from Japan.

This inevitable trend of car companies merging has and will continue to further dilute and erode the uniqueness of individual makes. When Peugeot acquired Citroen back in the 1970's Citroen's flair and truly unique touch was taken away. Now being in the 'same boat' as Opel, Vauxhall and Fiat I can't help but see a real nail in the coffin for this once forward-thinking and history-making marque.

RIP

All round great cars from iconic brands, but let down by inept, ethically challenged management.

Must be a motto in the auto industry - when the going gets tough, the tough gets thieving.

Fiat, fix it again tony, will merge with a bloated French company? I see doom and gloom in the future for that. Efficient workers working with lazy French workers? Not that they'll be working together actually. Sort of reminds me of Heinz/ Kraft foods merger. Sad.
