  10. “In Global Race, G.M. Wins by a Day of Pickup Sales” • In 2007, G.M. and Toyota essentially tied in sales when G.M. only sold approximately 3,000 more vehicles than Toyota. • This was despite industry leaders beliefs that Toyota would take over as the Number 1 auto dealer. • Despite the increase in sales, G.M. remains unprofitable in the U.S. and Toyota’s profits in the U.S. continue to rise.

  11. “In Global Race, G.M. Wins by a Day of Pickup Sales” • G.M. is doing everything in it’s power to regain profitability in the U.S. and is willing to forego being the Number 1 auto dealer to do so. • G.M. profits in global aspects however on the rise.

  12. Saturn- G.M.’s Defense • Saturn was created as an “import fighter” in the G.M. lineup • It was introduced in 1990 and performed very well capturing 75% of sales from outside G.M. • Stopped performing well due to G.M. stopping continuing funding like it should have

  13. Saturn- G.M.’s Defense • Now G.M. is pouring major funding back into Saturn to revamp its models and use it once again as it’s “import fighter” to help capture sales • It’s working as Saturn is getting onto more shopping lists of potential buyer’s and converting lookers into buyer’s like never before

  14. Possible New Strategy According to Research • Consolidate line by eliminating single retailers like Pontiac/Buick/GMC dealers and transform them all into Chevy dealers selling the same full line of cars. • Only the strongest dealers would survive after this consolidation. • It would allow G.M. to offer a car for every “purpose” and “purse” under one roof like the brand was initially intended to do.
