Synopsis

The chase for the Pentastar has been joined, and joined, and joined yet again. But like the horses on a Merry-Go-Round, the suitors are chasing one another with no one seemingly gaining the advantage. Despite its many problems, interest continues to grow in the Chrysler Group, the struggling American appendage of German-based DaimlerChrysler. From private-equity firms to automotive suppliers to even manufacturers, this OEM is generating the type of takeover interest usually reserved for the hottest high-tech startup.

This week Autoline Detroit looks at the players participating in the Chrysler Sweepstakes, why they are interested in buying it and how it will all shake out in the end. John McElroy is joined by David Welch from BusinessWeek and Gina Chon from the Wall Street Journal. In addition to the Chrysler segment, Autoline will preview next week's 2007 SAE World Congress.
