All their cars suck though! The only one that I would be seen in is the Barchetta, but even that is a weak car.
true. but they cater to a certain market. do you think they should expand their line to include 'real' cars or continue to make bugs?

I wouldn't worry considering that Juve have always had a healthy financial situation in these past 8 years. In fact they're the only Italian team who last year ended in green rather than in red like ALL other Italian teams (including Milan and Inter). That should tell you alot about Juve's financial strength. When you think about it, 4.2million Euros is not much, it will probably be the value of Zalayeta's sale ;)

winning a couple of trophies is all we need;)

besides,if fiat is in the red it doesn't mean we're losing money,but that we would be getting less,that's all.and all that can be recouped in the CL if we can get a good run going for a couple of years.i'd hate juve to get another sponsor though,fiat has always been the guiding hand behind ferrari and juventus,two of italy's greatest sporting institutions ever.

Yeah the Fiat-Juve-Ferrari triad has been very succesful. Let's not forget who made them succesful...the great Gianni Agnelli! Respect to a wonderful person, loved also by our rivals.

I don't know, they made one "real" car, the Coupe 20V turbo, and it was a pretty good vehicle, but I don't know how much market there is for that sort of thing in europe.

imo fiat could create a new brand like how toyota created lexus to sell luxury saloons.i don't think italy has anyone which rivals the merc or BMWs.

That's an interesting idea, but given Fiat's reputation, would you buy a Fiat luxury vehicle? I know that I wouldn't.

Again: We are a sepparate, independant company under the wings of the IFI fund; the IFI fund also owning lots of FIAT shares, but FIAT is increasingly on the hands of General Motors as regards ownership, and L'Avvocato's passing has only furthered the talks on GM taking over the reigns more.

FIAT's disastrous results in latter years have no real signficance for Juve's accounts though, as we haven't been receiving money from IFI in the time of the Triad, if my info is correct. The only impact is psychological, as management doesn't like to spend big when the company is laying off workers, as they still see Juve as part of the family- as an identification mark.

Much the opposite of Berlusconi at Milan of course...

Ciao.

So what you are saying is that despite the fact that Juve and Fiat have absolutely no financial connection, the board of Juve gets conservative when Fiat is doing poorly? I hope that they get that out of their system soon...

Yeah, but Lexus is a completely seperate division. Fiat would have to seperate the new line from it's old line by getting a new name and production facilities. But GM would never go for that seeing as they already have luxury lines.
