God, please no.

I'd even be okay with Hyundai, but not Nissan.

Basically french now.

Last thing we need is the Hellcat becoming some $250k AWD monster nobody wants or can afford. Or just cut out entirely because they probably want Jeep/Ram more.

"The Financial Times reported on Wednesday that Renault intends to restart merger talks with Nissan within 12 months, after which it would set its sights on a bid to buy Fiat Chrysler."

EDIT: This is not going to happen for another year or few.

Title in my OP link should be changed. It looks like Renault is wanting to do all the buying after they try and merge with Nissan.

On paper it looks decent. However, in reality it doesn't. I think a better fit is a scenario where they do a joint development of an entire platform that both could share the costs on.

If they bought out FCA you can kiss Chrysler and Dodge goodbye. They certainly are not going to spend the billions to develop all new product lines to fill out US only brands. I could see Alfa being sold off or shutdown as well. They would love to have instant marketshare in the US and have a solid Jeep and RAM as profit centers.
