The proposed merger between General Motors and Renault-Nissan is now truly dead, and the teasing of a possibly link with Ford has gone no where. It comes as little wonder then that Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn has admitted to having lost interest in forming an alliance with one of North America’s Big Three, according to an article from the New York Times.

At Ghosn’s first appearance since the failed GM talks, the enigmatic CEO said that "we don't think the timing is right," and that focus will shift back on improving the prospects of Nissan, further adding that "the right moment" to expand the alliance is "when Nissan is growing again."

The next several years will be very busy for Nissan with planned launches of the new Sentra, Altima, Maxima and the mighty GTR. Then there’s Infinity, which is pegged to launch the new G35 sedan and coupe as well as an all new crossover called the Rogue.
