    Volkswagen may use Ford's U.S. plants to build cars

    Volkswagen AG’s (VOWG_p.DE) chief executive said on Tuesday after a meeting at the White House that the German automaker was building an alliance with Ford Motor Co (F.N) and might use the U.S. automaker’s plants to build cars.

    VW CEO Herbert Diess said the company was also “considering building a second car plant” in the United States, adding, “We are in quite advanced negotiations and dialog with Ford Corporation to really build up a global automotive alliance, which also would strengthen the American automotive industry.”

    Nobody ever buys closed GM plants. They always get torn down while new factories get built, or sit empty until someone completely revamps them for some other purpose.

    What does General Motors do to buildings that makes them so uniquely unsuitable for the production of decent automobiles?
