GM automobiles are sold under diverse models. With its main headquarter located in Detroit, Michigan, USA, GM manufactures cars and trucks in 33 countries.
As it emerged from bankruptcy and company reorganization in 2010, GM reorganized the content and structure of its brand portfolio. Some nameplates like Pontiac, Saturn, Hummer, and service brands like Goodwrench were discontinued. Others, like Saab, were sold. In 2011, GM discontinued the Daewoo brand in South Korea and replaced it with the Chevrolet brand.
Two people shaped the history of GM - William C. Durant and Alfred Sloan. Durant founded the company on September 16, 1908 and while President of the company, GM acquired Cadillac, Elmore, Oakland (later known as Pontiac), Reliance Motor Truck Company, the predecessors of GMC Truck, and several others. Alfred Sloan was president when GM became the dominant automotive company which lasted into the 80s.
In the 1960s Volkswagen, Renault , Hillman, and Datsun became more successful in penetrating the American auto market. The "Big Three" also had to compete against each other and which resulted in some GM cars like the Corvair, Chevy II, the Falcon and the Camaro/Pontiac Firebird to make GM more competitive in the compact car sector.
