Before You Even Ask: Despite The Friendly Wave, Fiat Has "Zero" Interest In Chrysler

What with all the rumors and talking and what-have-you out there, I Just wanted to make sure to jump ahead of any speculation of a Fiat acquisition of the Chrysler Group. A reporter asked Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne today in a press scrum whether the Italian stallion of an automaker had any interest in the 'merican side of the German-American hybrid. Marchionne's response: "Zero." I'm sure we'll probably have some more non-news later as more reporters continue to play the game of "let's ask every auto exec we know about Chrysler."
