The mismanagement continues.

Working in a Japanese company after years of working for American companies has opened my eyes re the two different approaches to management. The Japanese are not perfect by any means, but damn, they make most American firms (and certainly most I've worked for) look like fools.

Toyota will crush GM, it's just a matter of time.

I'd like to have a Jag.

Ford should have concerned themselves with the Accord and Camry, rather than buying Jaguar, Volvo, Aston Martin, and Land Rover...

Jag is one of those legendary autos that simply should not be allowed to fade away

Yep, these marques are all pretty much "has beens" in the automotive world. Ferd is going to be pumping in money into those line for years to come. This £1.2bn is probably just the beginning.
