I, for one, have a memory. The empty promises have gone on for years and only the most naive still believe. THIS IS FROM 2001!!!

GM exec predicts market share gain

By David Kiley, USA TODAY

GM's head of product development Bob Lutz works on building a stronger lineup.

DETROIT : General Motors' top brass have backed away from setting market share goals for the past 2 years, but Bob Lutz, the automaker's new product czar, isn't shy about it.

In an interview with USA TODAY Tuesday, he said GM should gain as much as 5 to 6 points of market share in the next few years, based on the cars and trucks he will be responsible for launching. That would bring GM's share to around 35%, a level it hasn't seen since the 1980s.

"The superb engineering and technological excellence I have seen" at GM combined with "excellent design that people recognize and love" will get the world's largest automaker to that share, he said.


Bob Lutz is passionate about Bob Lutz. He's well past his prime, nothing more than a showman, and needs to go!

Keep believing, keep trusting, you're sound asleep...TIME TO WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
