The Maximum Bob Lutz is like the Michael Jordan of the automotive industry – one of the most respected legends in the industry. Lutz may now pull a Jordan and return to General Motors after retiring last year. According to The Detroit News, GM has been in talks with Lutz about bringing him back as a paid consultant.

Details are unclear but sources familiar with the matter said that GM has been thinking about formalizing an advisory role for Lutz.

Lutz currently remains in contact with many GM senior executives including CEO Dan Akerson.

“I have the utmost respect for the GM management,” Lutz said. “If they want me to come in as a consultant, I’d be very happy to consider it.”

We would love to see back Lutz.
