buying is okay, but koshun is whether we have the stomach to turn a profit despite a bidding war?

Mahindra will do better justice to the Jeep brand, because they have actually stuck to the Jeep DNA longer than what Jeep themselves have done.

This could also be an indicator that the Jeep brand might be valued on par or even less than the Jaguar/Landy deal. Makes my hair stand up already..Come on M&M !!

If tatas clinch the jag/land rover deal & m&m manage to get the jeep brand India will truly become the leader in producing offroaders- with the kind of roads we have we deserve that tag

I doubt this is going to happen.....Why would Cerberus want to offload their most profitable/valuable brand?

Jeep even won a legal battle against mahindra for using the term JEEP on thier previous MM540's. That was one of the most famous ones a decade ago i guess.

Now they want mahindra to buy them out, every dog has its day

The thought did occur to me too, but then Cerberus as a VC/Investment Banker are only interested in making a profit from the deal.

What better way than to buy one carmaker off someone who wanted to get rid of it and to sell 3 to buyers who really WANT them? Buy in a buyer's market and sell in a seller's market - isnt that everyone's dream?
