Illustration for article titled Question Of The Day, Bonus Edition: Will GM Last Another Hundred Years?

Today's the last day of GM's first hundred years. Will tomorrow be the first of the next hundred? GM is celebrating its centennial with a series of presentations down at the glass Tower 'o Power this week. We've got staff standing by to bring you the latest, but in the meantime, we wanted to ponder the bigger question surrounding this anniversary.

Relentless competition, the domestic economic meltdown and fuel prices are all combining to make GM's hundredth year one of its most difficult. The company has exciting new products in the pipeline like Volt and Cruze, as well as current offerings like the groundbreaking Corvette ZR1. But constant progress will be essential: Are they up to the job? Will General Motors last another hundred years?
