GM was just too big. All those brands were competing against each other.

Saab had become a joke, only a shell of its former uniqueness. Hummer had always been a joke, albeit one you could drive into a war zone...until they came out with the salon models. Then it was a dirty joke. One you could drive into Moab.

According to Wikipedia Tesla has some major owners in Toyota and Daimler AG. Musk owns another 10% according to the filing I just read. GM might not have much room to muscle in.
