General Motors: the new supply of denial Opel

General Motors has denied rumors of new supply of the Opel brand, reported in the past few hours by Auto Bild and Spiegel Online. According to the previews, Opel would have to move to a final Chinese manufacturer or not well be complemented by Volkswagen in the VAG group, leaving General Motors' freedom to best develop the brand Chevrolet and Cadillac.

The question, weighing the statements of GM CEO Dan Akerson, for months also anxious to return to profit brands Opel and Vauxhall, considered a "burden" for the revival of GM after the Great Depression. Opel was the subject of long negotiations with the group Magna International and Fiat in 2009, but had ended in a stalemate.

As reported by Reuters, the CEO Opel Karl Friedrich Stracke wrote to all employees Opel defining the newspaper reports as "pure speculation" on the plate there is in fact only a handover, but also a profound restructuring of production sites, with the risk of major layoffs.
