Surely, all these car manufacturers must know that China is heading for a major recessesion in the next 5-7 yrs. In essentially, what is a manufacturing/production and secondary banking/real estate boom is going to halt. Some are saying the bank backlash will be worse than our 2008 crash here.

If they are projecting 7-10 yrs of product line up with current market growth rates, they are screwed.
