    Huzzah! Lancia’s Not Dead Yet, Apparently

    Looks like the bosses at Fiat have backpedaled from yesterday’s grim assessment of the storied Lancia brand. 

    The folks at Motor Trend report that Chrysler spokesman Scott Brown clarified remarks made by Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne. 

    “What was said by Marchionne is that Lancia Epsilon will continue to be made in Italy and the rest of Lancia portfolio will be developed together with the Chrysler Brand and those vehicles will be made in North America,” said Brown, “A development has been announced, NOT the end of Lancia.”

    Really good news for classic rally fans and Gran Turismo players, underwhelming news for anyone who realizes that their current lineup is 50 percent re-badged Chryslers
