Yes, pure speculation by someone who doesnt seem to have researched much. GM just made an agreement late Oct. with the AFL/CIO that would allow them to close two plants in the not to distant future. Under these binding agreements (they are a done deal) GM will continue to build the Pontiac Solstice roadster in Wilmington, Del. thru 2011, then transfer production to Bowling Green, KY. Also guaranteed is the G6 production at the Orion plant thru 2013. (Source~Motor Authority) It seems the G5/Cobalt brands are headed for doom, USA Today reports both are finished at this models year-end. AutoWeek reported that GM plans to concentrate it'* Pontiac brand on pure performance cars and get it totally out of the small car business.
With the Big 3 headed back to Washington this week and posturing in the press the most negative possible garbage as they whimper for their supposed livelyhood,.... expect to hear some tall tales and a flood of crocodile tears. What happens in the end here is pure speculation as the saga goes on, and on.
