I love my Fiat-Chrysler-Jeep! I always wanted an Italian sports car like a Ferrari!

They should rename the company "Filthy Racers."

/Just re-arrange the letters.

This after the Fiat management promised, no, swore, that if they would be allowed to do the merger by the Italian government they'd keep the HQ in Turin.

Makes about as much sense as anything else in this world.

It's headquartered in London for tax purposes, but its actually incorporated in Amsterdam.

If anyone doesn't have a right to complain about being swindled by crooked liars, it is the Italian government....

The difference in attitudes towards FCA management, Marchionne in particular, between Detroit and Turin is amusing to me.  Talking to folks in the industry here in the states, it seems like everybody's just glad Fiat was able to fix what the idiot Germans had broken during the Merger of Imbeciles.  The difference between Daimler-era CJDR and Fiat-era CJDR is night-and-day.

They've blown by their targets for Jeep to the point that the factories are running out of capacity.  Ram is doing better than ever.  Dodge finally looks like it's got the direction it needs.  And even the Chrysler marquee -- which I didn't think would survive -- looks set up to last.  I'd say they did a hell of a job.

Meanwhile, in Turin, they're all biatching about the HQ moving.

This is what makes Chrysler more American than America.

US tax rate too high, Italy tax rate too high, the UK is a better choice.

Chrysler hasn't been an American car company in over a decade.

I don't care.  They just need to bring Alfa here.

Yeah, this.  Only downside is I'd really love to drive a MiTo, but they're apparently dropping it.

Earlier this week top gear news was saying Alfa plans on releasing up to a dozen new models in the next 3-4years. Should be a couple lookers in there.

Oh, I've no doubt there will be.  But, if I remember the presentation FCA did the other day correctly, I think everything was C-segment and up.  Sounds like the B-segment will be Dodge + the Abarth 500s -- both of which I like, but I really love the design on the Alfas.

That is actually a nice-looking car. No clue how it drives, but it would be fun to try it out.

The same reason Spanish fly comes from an African beetle...or French fries from
Belgium...or Danish pastries from Racine, Wisconsin...or Boston Market from
Denver....or Toyotas from Kentucky...or Hyundais from Alabama....you get the idea.
