Susan Jacobs is correct when she laments the use of incentives by General Motors (Letters, May 2). However, I feel that GM would not be in its current predicament if it produced must-have products.
Get rid of the focus groups. GM has many talented designers; let them do their thing.
The Buick Lucerne is GM's first volume car with contemporary design.
How about an edgy design for the Chevrolet Monte Carlo capitalizing on Chevy's NASCAR success?
On the quarter panel of every car would be a small replica of the number of the famous driver's car.
In 1973, GM had the highly successful Monte Carlo, Pontiac Grand Prix and Oldsmobile Cutlass coupes. Let GM produce new product in a shorter time frame and once again create some must-have cars.
