We have seen more than a few partnership between automakers fail and also succeed and the one that we think would get a lot of attention when the time comes is the Toyota Supra and BMW Z5 upgrades.
Toyota announced that they will be building the Supra with the help of BMW and in return, they will be helping BMW with the Z5 as well. The Supra have been getting a lot of attention since then.
However, all of that did nothing to convince Honda that they should start working with the other automakers. Honda managed to remain independent so far and when asked if they have any plans to work with any other automaker in the future, Honda made it clear that that is not part of their plan right now.
While we can see why they want to remain on their own, we can’t help but feel that they might be the ones losing out at the end of the day.
