    Nice touch! GM still needs to resolve the supply issues on the new Corvette. It is finally making a product that the public wants to buy, and without rebates!(who could have predicted it) GM has stated before it does not want too much capacity but there is a happy medium. GM needs to lose the arrogance and get the product into the hands of the consumers. One strong flagship car that is right for right now would do wonders for the company image and the bottom line. Listen to the consumer!

    Gatorj,

     

    What "supply issues" are you referring to?

     

    No manufacturer can do the Capex to supply all the demand for a popular new product, to satisfy all those that want to be "first on the Block" to own one.

     

    If they did, the car simply would not be affordable, and the model could not be financially viable & sustainable over it's expected lifespan.

     

    Be patient, and you can get yours before long, without excessive dealer mark-up :)

    It was treasury's decision to take an equity stake, vs a loan, like Ford got for 5.9B

     

    So it's the New GM's fault that the gov't sold too early?

     

    Sorry, stocks are forward looking, not about the past.

    It make me wonder why traders were still shorting and playing their games in the GM stock the last couple days . Just like Tesla going up 16% today on a story they sold "about" on a story they sold about 22,300 Worldwide. The Volt alone at GM still out sold them. GM sold 9.71 million in 2013 and Bloomberg was the only network that pick up the story, CNBC was too busy hyping Tesla. Way to go GM

    Too bad all those bond holders and retirees who invested in the original GM got wiped out. Too bad about GMAC as well. Then there is all the lost bailout money. But hey, the unions were made whole.

    If you buy bonds in a sinking company, you reap what you sow.

    Yeah folks complain that they rode the stock and bonds all the way down to zero. They should stick to Elvis collector plates and exit the market.
