It seems the media is keen on stirring the pot with the thought of a Fiat-Chrysler and General Motors merger.
Following the most recent shareholder meeting in the Netherlands, FCA CEO, Sergio Marchionne, was questioned on if he plans to launch a hostile takeover of GM.
According to The Detroit Free Press, Marchionne has no intentions to launch such a bid after being rejected both privately and publicly by GM CEO, Mary Barra.
“This is not an indiscriminate dating game. I’m not willing to go with anybody to get it done. We have been publicly rebuffed, we have been rejected and you cannot force these things. I don’t want to. At the moment, we have no intention to do anything hostile.”
Instead, the FCA CEO said he will focus on the automaker’s growth plan through 2018, and is readying its latest minivan to show at the 2016 North American International Auto Show.
