I know it is OT but there is a big SEZ coming up in the place where the Standarad Motors factory used to be.
OK, if not Standard Motors, let it be Hindustran Motors.

If Mahindra takes over JEEP, how good is the news for the Indian consumer? Because even after TATA took over the Daewoo Comercial Vehicles division we have bot seen a "revolution" in our heavy vehicles segment.
I think even if TATA takes over Jaguar and LR it will only benifit the TATAs as a company. I won't expect any goodies from them in the near future.

But Mahindra being a smaller company might want to wring out max profits and we - The Inidan consumers - might have got a treat out of it.
I would have liked to see them get hold of Jaguar & LR too instead of tata, but thats not gonna happen now!

You are wrong my friend.

Tata's trucks are much cooler now.

I really do not think Mahindra will buy Jeep.

I guess you are not up to date with the developments of last 2 years. Fiat has a controlling stake in Chrysler now, and they will not sell the profit-making Jeep brand to anyone. In fact, Fiat recently released the plan for various brands for next few years. So you can hope for a mini Wrangler in the next few years.

There are talks that Mahindra is looking to buy Aston Martin. I'm not sure if this is a rumor.

Would be brilliant if M&M buy out Jeep.

Jeep gave them life after the second world war and it would be fitting for the child to now give life back to the mother, in that sense...

Guys, this is a four years old thread. This was during the recessions when Chrysler made losses. Subsequently, Fiat has acquired a controlling stake in Chrysler in a two stage deal.

http://money.cnn.com/2012/07/03/news...sler/index.htm

The Jeep brand is not for sale any more.

May be the thread title can be changed accordingly to quell the confusion.
