An Indonesian newspaper is reporting that one of the two US auto companies is poking around the Southeast Asian country for a new assembly location. The mystery automaker is said to be interested in dropping somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.4 billion to develop a plant capable of producing 200,000 sedans per year.

Combine this report with the news that General Motors is looking to assemble its new sub-Theta compact crossover vehicle in a "leading cost country", and perhaps it's possible that GM wants to build cute-utes in Indonesia.
