If Ford sell their Mazda stake all is not lost for platform development, the German Ford company develop fine chassis - Focus for example.
Ford Focus RS already a winner. ...
They source a LOT of their 4 cylinder and v6 engine development from Mazda. any wonder why the current line of 4 cylinder duratec's/Mazda MZR line of engines are SOOOO responsive to mods?
The best part is that the first people Toyota approached about licensing the Prius' hybrid drive system was GM... who turned them down.
Nissan didn't. That's why we now have hybrid Altimas and no hybrid Impalas.
Stupidity all the way around at GM.
Perhaps they didn't like the terms of the license? Especially considering they are working on their own design that I think will end up being far superior, that being the series hybrid design of the volt.
