Buick GNX. :-P

also sold as the Chevy Monte Carlo, Pontiac Grand Prix, and Oldsmobile Cutlass

To my thinking, those were all made by the same manufacturer...and SOLD by the same manufacturer, albeit under four different brands. Pontiac and Oldsmobile never offered turbocharged versions.

I know... I was being a smart ass.

This one's bothering me. I thought of one that's been sold by no fewer than 10 manufacturers but not all of them were offered turbocharged...and they were assembled by three or four (maybe more) manufacturers.

Are these four "manufacturers" or marketing brands? The "manufacturer" that no longer exists is completely out of business, stopped making/selling vehicles, or not selling/making vehicles for the US?

Not trying to be argumenative... I guess I still consider

Pontiac & Buick & Cadillac etc. to be separate manufacturers.

Six of one, half dozen of other

Actually, there are probably more than 50 manufacturers around the world today...and probably another 100 more assemblers.
