Oh well, the partnership with Fiat may breathe new life into the company.

It goes back awhile, but there is a Chrysler basjoos would love...that concept should have been retro instead of the PT Cruiser.

Time to bring Lee Iacocca to rescue again? I've never been a Chrysler fan but I read his book and it was pretty good.

Maybe they can build a modern day Yugo.

This is my first thought. One that was actually designed for aero purposes.

Good guess, but I'm thinking a few decades earlier.

Neil -

I'm sad for Chrysler, but I hope everyone wins down the line :

Fiat keeps the low-CO2 crown for second year in a row
Quote:
Last year, Jato Consulting found that Fiat lineup of cars was the lowest CO2-producing line in Europe. Fiat bosses must be smiling, because the same has been found for this model year. Fiat's cars produce an average of 137.3 g/km. This places Fiat ahead of all these guys

* Peugeot (138.1 g/km)
* CitroŽn (142.4 g/km)
* Renault (142.7 g/km)
* Toyota (144.9 g/km)
* Ford (147.8 g/km)
* Opel/Vauxhall (151.1 g/km)
* Volkswagen (158.8 g/km)
* BMW (160.6 g/km)
* Mercedes (185.0 g/km)
