Workers, government, the press, all want a clear statement from GM: Is Opel up for sale, or not?

No clear statement is forthcoming, and frustration runs high. There never had been an official denial of the possible spin-off. The stress is so enormous that an alleged telephone call in which GM’s Dan Akerson supposedly told Opel’s Karl-Friedrich Stracke that purportedly GM is not in talks with a buyer for Opel, makes headlines around the world. Is that for real?The pressure is so high that a source at Opel reportedly leaked the above to Germany’s Handelsblatt.  Now, reporters can’t even get a comment with respect to the alleged telephone call.

The report itself isn’t even in the on-line version of the Handelsblatt. Instead, the paper riles its readers with an extensive gallery showing where the Chinese had bought what of Europe’s automotive industry.
