Re: Mitsubishi to Copy Ford
Mistsubishi is one wierd company. The price you can buy the exact same model magna is ~40%!!! They are FWD cars in a country that loves RWD. They have poor turning circles, the styling both inside and out are disapointing, poor resale, simular quality problems to all OZ manufacturered cars, they have a car that has outlived its time.
Not that Ford OZ was in much better shape (tho everyone knew ford could make great cars they justy never seemed to appear).
Mitsubishi OZ have maybe enough talent to pull it off. Relaunch a reinvigourated range of products across the board, and a very impressive and unique Australian made model.
Then again they could dump some horrific looking imports and another dishwater local product.
I would say that looking at GP work here in OZ is a excellent start. Ford had a complete turn around, in styling, technology, costs, attitude, sales, etc etc and did it in record time.
