Default Proton chalks up profit but expects rocky road ahead..

Yesterday's papers:

Proton reported a 4th-quarter net profit of RM127.2million (S$55.4 million), compared with a loss of RM63.9 million a year earlier. Its full-year net profit was RM46million, barely a tenth of its 2004/2005 result.

Proton has seen its market share decline as foreign-made cars become more attractive option to their locally made rivals.

Eager to boost its small export revenue, Proton said recently it was working with China's Chery Automobile to jointly study plans to build and sell each other's cars in the two countries and elsewhere in South-east Asia.

Two wrongs don't make one right?

opps... u think it's a wrong move for Proton to pair up with China's manufacturer?

Great minds think alike...

Naza seems like a very big company in Malaysia, but over here, I don't see many of them here.

Ya, they are doing this badge engineering, which GM and many companies are already doing for some time. I wonder how much the Naza-Wish will cost.

yeah, actually getting a 2nd hand car is more attractive in terms of price savings, just that the worry of whether the car come with problems.
