Future of Delaware Sky Plant Uncertain

From the Associated Press: Delaware Govenor Jack Markell has spoken with a top General Motors official but doesn't have any details on the future of the struggling automaker's Wilmington plant. GM is announcing it will cut 21,000 U.S. jobs by next year and phase out its Pontiac brand. The Wilmington plant makes two versions of the Pontiac Solstice, along with two other sports cars, the Saturn Sky and Opel GT roadster. It employs about 500 hourly and 100 salaried workers.

Next-Generation Buick Regal

David Thomas from Cars.com Kicking Tires: If you think domestic automakers are only hitting up U.S. taxpayers for help, go north of the border. Canada's National Post newspaper reported today that General Motors is asking the Canadian government for $2.4 billion in aid. In exchange, it promises to bring a new Buick model — the Regal, which is already sold in China — to its Ontario plant for North American distribution. GM says it will position the Regal to compete with the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, but doesn't say what its new LaCrosse — set to debut in Detroit next month — will be positioned against.
