So I'm guessing Whitacre is the boss now.

He stepped down. It wasn't like it was some sort of Donald Trump "YOU'RE FIRED!" sort of thing. It was a guy being like "F this, I'm out". I wonder what it was that pushed him over the edge. Maybe they've been "altering" sales numbers by counting deposits put on cars as new car sales? Maybe the Volt truly is no farther along than it was 2 years ago. Or maybe he got tired of daily phone calls from Washington? Who knows.

I pity whoever has to take over as captain of this Titanic...
