Fiat strongly denies production rumors

Italian newspapers Il Messaggero and Il Mattino have been reporting changes in Fiat’s production plans. These reports have included the repurposing of the Pomigliano d’Arco plant to produce two small SUVs, including a Jeep for North American sale, and use of the Cassino plant for the Chrysler 100 and its Lancia counterpart.

In a statement issued this morning, the company said: “Articles published in today’s Il Messaggero and Il Mattino referring to a so-called “Marchionne plan” to be announced on October 30 are pure journalistic speculation and entirely without foundation.”

A spokesman added, “And Dr. Marchionne has even more beard …” implying that even the pictures accompanying the stories were wrong.
