Buick, Pontiac to stay, GM says
"The statements were taken out of context. I've been told that that's not what he said at all," said Mike Delehanty, president of Delehanty Pontiac in Flushing.
Link:"Mark LaNeve assured all of us that GM isn't considering eliminating any of its brands."

Lutz is grounded, he can't play with his Solstice for 2 months. He can only talk to the media through his blog (where someone else can edit him first )LatinVenom said:May be so,
but why didn't Lutz himself write the letter since he was the one that start it.
It depends on how much say he really has. There has been some rumors that he does not have the broad sweeping powers GM would lead us to believe he has, in which case, he might not have the authority to act on everything he says.LatinVenom said:May be so,
but why didn't Lutz himself write the letter since he was the one that start it. I am sure if their bottom line does not improve by 2007 then some line(s) will be phase out.
Luts was long gone. Plymouth was phased out after the merger (buyout) by Damiler Benz, and Luts was gone from Chrysler by then.DreamerDave said:Help me with my timeline. Was Lutz involved with the demise of Plymoth?
Many of you probably read something to the effect that "GM is considering shedding a brand." Let me say it now, for the world to hear: No, we have no plans to shed a brand. Period.
This equation has yet to be proven to be effective. Pretty much all the excitement about the Solstice has been generated by the car it's self, and not any new media marketing approach. Giving away some 200 odd G6s on Oprah, was new and different, but in the end I don't think it helped G6 sales at all. In that case, it's the car and price that is holding it back.solli4me said:Trump media/internet = generated interest/sales.
