Some of the guesses for 2006 made by the group include the following…
Rick Wagoner being ousted from GM
Bob Lutz’s star fades
More musical chairs for Ford management
Above average sales success for the Fusion and Edge
PAG being dismantled
Chinese automakers making their move into the U.S.
Toyota surpassing G.M. in worldwide sales
SMART cars being sold by Chrysler in the U.S.
The group admits that its 36th annual meeting last year resulted in some horribly off the mark predictions and completely absent mentions of the more obvious events that would occur in 2005, so take its 2006 predictions with a grain of salt.
