SMART expected to break even in '07

DaimlerChrysler's quirkly little MINI-fighting brand might break even for the first time in its existence, according to the company. Less has been more, evidently, with all of the nipping and tucking going on in the company's ranks and product lineup in an effort to narrow down the losses.

Big news for the brand lately has been whether it's going to make an appearance on the auction block -- DCX hired Goldman Sachs to help it court potential suitors, but cancelled the ask (according to  Handelsblatt, anyway) unexpectedly. Sounds like SMART will stick around for the time being.
