Because GM is shutting down its High Performance division. Saturn division is dead. Hummer's on the table. Pontiac's good as dead with the complete cut on the G8 production. Saab's been dying slowly. Cadillac V models are dead along with Chevy SS models. I'm afraid that even Camaro's and the Corvette's days are numbered. The company will likely survive, but it won't be the GM as we know it. Chrysler's desperately looking for partners, although it really doesn't have much to offer. It drags on with rehashed version of current cars. Chrysler might just die off or be bought out in near future. Ford is doing much better, which is good news. But Mercury and Lincoln are still undesirable, although money loss is minimized thanks to platform sharing throughout all three brands. Japanese companies aren't doing much better. Toyota's cutting up to 40% of its development. It's already stopped truck production after low sales. Honda's Acura brand is said to be doing worse, not helped by the extremely polarizing design they've recently implemented. Mitsubishi and Subaru have very little to show, especially now that they've withdrawn from rallying that made them so popular in the first place. Audi's pulled out from American Le Mans series, in which it's claimed long standing victories. Aston Martin's suffering from a drastic sales drop. Porsche's also seeing the effect.
