Last week it was brought to light that General Motors and Chrysler have been in high-level talks about a possible merger. With General Motors being the parent company of HUMMER, and Chrysler the parent company of arch-rival Jeep, we were wondering what would happen if the two brands were forced to merge themselves.
Even if a possible merger were to go through, there is a high likelihood that GM would have already completed a full or partial sale of HUMMER. Plus, iconic brands don’t normally mix well…or do they?
We thought it would be an appropriate time to revisit the HumBug – a vehicle that is clearly HUMMER inspired in the front, with a roof and door structure reminiscent of a Jeep Wrangler. Under the hood you can find a Porsche engine, completing the bizarre vehicle mix.
So who knows – maybe we’ll have a HumBug in 2010! Probably not – but we’re in for an interesting and telling few months – that’s for sure.
