I'll guarantee you GM is having meetings up the 'ol wazzoo to figure what to do with product planning, especially RWD. Turbo 4's may be a partial answer but they are caught with their pants around their knees on the Cobalt / G5 /Aveo. They may have to REALLY put the BEAT in the USA pipeline but can they cover cost?

With economists predicting $4.00 to $ 8.00 per gal. for fuel, the G8 and Camaro, big block Challengers, Chargers, Mustangs et al., are ultimately going to go the way of the trucks. Corvette and CTS V will live on since they are such small niches and are priced for people who don't worry about the price of gas.

Time for GM to paint with very bold strokes right now on fuel efficient (but high content)
vehicles or they'll get their hiny handed to them Toyonda. The Volt will not be available in enough numbers or at a price to be a volume daily commuter.

Decisions in the next 6 months could spell either success or doom. Kinda scary.
