Car Stocks Picking Up Speed: Making Sense Of The IPOs

But Marchione (also understandably) does not want to pay top dollar for a firm which still seems to have some problems. Chrysler has lower brand recognizability than Ford (F) or  General Motors (GM), especially abroad, and is famous for building larger SUVs and trucks in an era when the market is focusing more on fuel-efficiency and electric cars. Chrysler gets about 86% of its revenue domestically in an age when emerging markets are seen by most as key. 

In addition, a flurry of electric car companies are gearing up for their own IPOs after they saw how Tesla's (TSLA) turned out. Many of these firms, from the Atlanta-based Wheego to the California-based Fisker, would face heavy competition from the big names. This makes it important to pay attention to any big-name partnerships. For instance, a new start-up called Coda is in talks to provide electric cars for the car rental giant Hertz (HTZ).

If all this talk of IPOs and new ventures isn't enough to rev the engines of auto enthusiasts – I don't know what is.
