Default Wild Ass Rumor of the Day: BMW Buying Opel

You gotta love an autoblogger who writes After all, the recent cancellation of the luxurious 4-seat coupe previewed by the concept CS shows that the current BMW management are acting, how should I say it like a bunch of pussies. [I don't agree but I appreciate the, uh, Ehrbarkeit.]

Anyway, our new BFF at auto-future has read the most recent paper version of Autobild (out today). The pub predicts that BMWs about to go on a buying binge. The strategy previewed includes BMW forming an holding in order to acquire positions in other companies, including a percentage of Daimler that allows a position in the board, and possible a Opel buy either alone or with Daimler and German government colaboration.

Well get ask our man Bertel Schmitt to pick-up a copy at the train station and provide a more complete translation. But given GMs DC begging bowl debacle (part two today rock the House), its increasingly clear that its only a matter of time before someone grabs GMs Euro-brand. Or at least the best bits.

Update: In the meantime, Bertel Schmitt picked up a copy of Auto-BILD at the train station. He called in and said They are talking menace a trois! Between BMW, Mercedes and Opel. He said, its just a scenario, written up by the magazine. Well hear more when he has found an Internet Cafe in Berlin.

GM - would be stupid to give up Opel. Much of their new models are greatly influenced by the success of the Opel brand and designs. Much like Ford's Euro models have rave reviews and great designs which Ford is scrambling to bring to the US to help their poor list of US based products.
