Some sugestions

I was wondering: Beside Dorris itself, Miçubixi and Astra which are the other present-day car brands of the group? Did Winton survived to present as a marque? Perhaps the several car brands from Dorris would have different "personalities" in order not to each one canibalise themselves' sales. Such could appeal to different kinds of car consumers. I sugest, for example, a generalistic car brand (a bit like Ford or Chevy *here*) having models from small cars to large ones but without high prestige status. An entry level brand destinated to young drivers, made of small and perhaps sporty cheap cars. A mid-luxury brand with sporty character, destinated to older people. An up-market brand with large luxury and conservative cars, destinated mostly to wealthy people. --Pedromoderno 09:24, 16 September 2007 (PDT)

I like how you think. :) BoArthur 19:13, 17 September 2007 (PDT)
Perhaps also each brand, although keeping its own "personality", could share mechanical and esthetical elements (at least) in order to make lower production costs. But hopefully wouldn't be just "badge engeneering", like happened *here* on some british cars of the 1960's (for instance, Morris, Austins, Rileys and so on were simply the same cars with different badges).--Pedromoderno 08:35, 18 September 2007 (PDT)
