I'm too lazy to look up other sources, but, if I'm reading the article correctly, Ghosn have a 2-hr press conference to say that he will clear his name but not actually showing evidence that would?

Lebanon has put travel restrictions on him. There has been plenty of time for him to 'clear' his name. His #2 was let go / left for very similar reasons to Ghosn.

I want every individual to have a fair / unbiased trial, however this isn't a good look at the moment.

Let's see how this shakes out - but I suspect it'll be 2 hours of nonsense that shows nothing.

In some layer of hell, Carlos Ghosen will be driving his Vel Satis laughing at Mary Barra in a Chevy Volt while Bill Ford III stares on from his Ford Focus, freshly disabled from a DCT failure.

Ghosn now claims Nissan will be bankrupt after 2-3 years

If true and Nissan keeps dropping in sales, declares bankruptcy, maybe Renault will pick up the pieces at bargain basement prices.

There was also a recent article that theorized Honda could acquire them.

Although, why? There is a 100% overlap in market position, roughly the same size, markets where they do well and where they do less so, both have a so so premium division. I just don't really see the potential benefit.

agree, especially with Nissan and renault already closely working together, it would be renault's favour to buy them and not honda.

Honda's history would point against this. They are the smallest and most isolated of long standing auto manufacturers.

* shrug * really just meant to share this article. Not my opinion specifically:
