CNBC presents "Saving General Motors," an extraordinary look behind the scenes at the dramatic struggle to rebuild an ailing corporate giant that was the symbol of American manufacturing might for nearly a century. With unusual access, CNBC cameras go inside GM's design studio, on the factory floor, and halfway around the world as the company fights to beat back an onslaught of low-cost, high-quality foreign competition.
