    • The spinoff of Ferrari could give Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (NYSE:FCAU) enough breathing room to seek a merger partner, according to auto industry analysts.
    • The rising cost of developing clean cars in Europe and the U.S. sets the stage for automakers to join forces through mergers and extended partnerships.
    • "Eventually it must happen," notes FCA chief Sergio Marchionne on the topic of mega-mergers.
    • No company is too big to be ruled out of the merger discussions due to the benefits of scaling investment costs and matching strengths/weaknesses in Europe, Latin America, China, and the U.S, note insiders.

    Ford (F) agrees to sell its climate-control business to Detroit Thermal Systems, a JV of France's Valeo and entrepreneur Vincent Johnson. While the price is undisclosed, the deal is significant because it represents the final step in a 2006 plan to cut Ford's North American workforce and sell its Visteon (VC) parts facilities. The plan was put in place by Mark Fields, hotly tipped to be Ford's next CEO. (PR)
