Default Fiat Taking over?

Just heard on the News that Fiat was talking about buying 33% stock in Dodge and introducing some of thier smaller cars in the USA. Has anyone heard anything about this? Might be a good thing, May help get us back on our feet. Get some Italian made cars over here Just thought I would share what I heard on the news. So don't kill the messanger ok?

From what I've read there will be no cash involved, Its more of a partner ship for both. It opens the door for Chrysler to sell oversea's and for fiat to come back to the states. They would be acquiring the 19.9% of Chrysler that Daimler still own's. I think it a good deal in the long haul if it work's out.

They wouldn't get rid of the Dodge name I am sure. Mopar loves us too much!! A mid-engine drive Ram... that would definately be intresting.

I have no idea if the two are linked but I like the new Dodge Circuit and Dodge's attempt to go "green".
Dodge says it offers 150-200 miles of all-electric range and that it will hit 60 mph in less than five seconds. Drag strips will pose little challenge thanks to a 13 second quarter-mile figure. Dodge says the Circuit can be charged in a standard 110v outlet, though a special 220v outlet will halve charge times.

All that's left now is a Hemi hybrid that gets around 45 mpg, lol

They didn't with such names as Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Maserati. As VW didn't with Audi, Seat and Skoda either

Maybe we could see Valentino Rossi defending his MotoGP title riding a Dodge/Mopar Yamaha M1... LOL
