Fitting? Latest Hummer Interest Is From Gulf Region

The Hummer saga continues! There have been a lot of rumors about who might be interested, but so far each one of those parties has stepped back and declared that they are not interested. Now comes news that there might be some potential buyers from the Middle East. "For sure, there has been interest from various parties within the Gulf ... there is a precedent in the cases of Aston Martin, Ferrari or Daimler and those kinds of solutions could be very realistic solutions," said General Motors Middle East Managing Director Terry Johnson.

There certainly isn’t a shortage of oil or bravado in the Gulf, so buying an icon like Hummer just might make sense for an Arab buyer. Let’s face it, whatever GM ends up pricing the brand at, these guys probably have that kind of cash stuffed in their private jet’s couch.
