Serious Consideration is Required

If the Big 3 approves of this type of vehicle design decision, how can they possibly justify getting a government 'bridge loan'?

Ineptitude usually manifest itself in the choices that are attributed to you.  Someone thought that a hatchback Trans Am would sell.  

I thought that there was a 3 - 5 year span between concept vehicle to production approval.  At least that is the standard line from automakers when they were asked some 10 years ago to start making vehicles that met certain fuel efficient standards.  I guess they felt that it was easier or cheaper to lobby Congress rather than provide the product that the government and this country has asked for.

I can't say that I ever  saw one of these on the street, but it looks a lot like the Dodge Magnum.
