GM's Design Team Looks to the Future

While the Company Reels From Past Mistakes, Its Designers Are Determined to Create the Next Great American Car

By BILL WEIR and MEREDITH BLAKE

July 10, 2009

The irony is undeniable. While General Motors Corp. was winding through bankruptcy proceedings this summer, its products were starring in the biggest blockbuster of the season. "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" features warrior robots from outer space, turning themselves into -- what else? -- Chevrolets.

For its many critics, GM's promise to rebuild itself from a bankrupt relic into the innovative carmaker of the future is no less fantastical than the transformations on screen.

Watch "General Motors: From Dream to Downfall" on"20/20" TONIGHT at 10 p.m. ET.

If GM succeeds, much of the credit will go to its design team -- artists who must ignore the financial problems of today in order to pave the way for the company's viability tomorrow.
