    interesting, I did not know opel had lost money for over 20 years! its bad, but I hope a turnaround is possible or it will go same rout as rover. it needs buyouts and merges to stay alive.

    Yes, losses over many years at Opel/Vauxhall, that's why GM got rid to PSA.

    Typical GM, sells off Saab then Vauxhall/Opel all for the sake of keeping Chevrolet, GMC, Buick and Cadillac brands alive, they killed off Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Saturn and Hummer brands.

    The sods killed off Saabs due to their stupidity. Sell it off to the highest bidder and to tell with the consequences. Utterly deplorable.

    well, its happened, vauxhall is now owned by France’s PSA Group, with the VXR planned to come back as a electric model, with all PSA's drawings and tech, so in my opinion, vauxhall is now dead.

    sad times.
