Flash Forward: What's Ahead for the Auto Industry?

Monday, January 09, 2012

There's optimism in Detroit. Back from bankruptcy the "Detroit Three" of GM, Chrysler and Ford are all making money and they're pouring money into engineering and designing cars that can go head to head with the best in the industry. The 2012 North American International Auto Show kicks off this week in Detroit. 

Paul Eisenstein, publisher of "The Detroit Bureau," is at the show this morning to help preview what’s in store.

Celeste's saying "Back from bankruptcy the 'Detroit Three' of GM, Chrysler and Ford are all making money..." implies that Ford went into bankruptcy along with the other two, and that is untrue. Ford never entered bankruptcy.

I've been saying that the next big leap in technology is going to be in transportation. But if Detroit wants to be part of it, they need to start thinking outside the car & investing in some serious R&D.
