Chinese Company Doesn’t Want Hummer After All

GM just announced that the deal to sell the failing Hummer brand to Chinese company Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines Co., Ltd. fell through. No specifics were given, only that they were “unable to complete the acquisition of HUMMER.” Way to be specific there, boys.

As a result, GM is shutting down Hummer completely, Pontiac-style. Still honoring warranties, yadda yadda, but you can’t go buy one anymore (not that anyone was.) GM said they will “begin the orderly wind-down of the HUMMER operations.” Looks like affluent tough guys around the country will have to look elsewhere for the ridiculously large, mostly pointless SUVs.

If you like them, you’re likely to pick one up for cheap. You never know, they might be worth something down the road.

Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way
