The future of Chrysler

October 22, 2008
The latest unnamed source to discuss the future of Chrysler raises the possibility of the company being sold off in pieces.

This, after it became public that General Motors is interested in Chrysler to snag desperately needed cash. Nissan and its partner Renault are talking with Chrysler, too.

Chrysler is gradually pulling out of Indiana. The Indianapolis foundry is gone, and another company took over its longtime plant in New Castle, where the high school still bears the automakerâ??s name.

That pretty much leaves the transmission plants in Kokomo. And the dealers.

Aside from the iconic Jeep brand, is there anything within Chrysler thatâ??s worth salvaging? Anything that other car companies donâ??t do better?
