Truly mind-boggling, C4S. This is one of the best finds to date.

This grapg illustrates the trend of mergers and take-overs better than anything else. Heck, there are hardly any independent car manufacturers left!! Honda, Porsche and BMW are more the exception than the rule.

Yes, but I was mentioning small (relatively) and specialist car manufacturers. Compared to the giant Toyota, Honda/BMW/Porsche are considered specialist manufacturers. Also Honda and Porsche have more than once resisted take-over attempts.
