The car industry has such a confusing family tree since the past ten years has seen partnerships, bankruptcies, sales, and separations, which makes it not easy to keep up with who owns which car brands.

As auto producers have slimmed down to become more efficient and profitable, we have seen storied names, like Pontiac, Mercury, Oldsmobile, and Hummer, fade into the history books. We have seen others, like Volvo, Chrysler, and Jaguar, to find new corporate parents.
