Looks like they've made up their mind:

I just had to stop and ponder this for a moment - it just boggles my mind sometimes on how fast things move and how truly unwritten the future is.

Back in 2009, FIAT was based in Turin and purchased a controlling stake in Chrysler from the US Government. It was sort of like the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Technically Marchionne had the throne of Chrysler but he was really based in Turin.

As of today, the fully merged companies are now chartered in Holland, HQ'ed in Albion and the thrones in Detroit and Turin are empty.

In the parlance of the youth today: "cray cray".
