The article did not mention the previous 20 year association between Mitsubishi and Proton.

Proton will never be succesful until the Government gets out.

may me but Japanese manufactures don't like deviating from their own brand names and promote a different brand name, unlike non Japanese. GM and VW etc consist of tens of differnt brands and seems to work well. Japan you must look outside the box!

Do you know how many Brands Toyota has?

Have you ever heard of Lexus or ,SCION?

How about INFINITI and or Acura?

@MADCOWS I wasn't talking about brand name of the car, just about the engine unit. Actual Lotus has (tweaked) Toyota motors since they droped the K-serie Rover motor in 2004. I don't want Lotus cars to be branded Honda. I just thought it would make access possible to use Honda engines which are good IMO. It could also revive some old F1 collaboration memories...
