DETROIT, July 10 (UPI) -- General Motors Corp. is discussing a possible partnership with eBay that would allow dealers to list new cars on the auction Web site, officials said.

Rob Chesney, vice president of eBay Motors and Marketplaces, told The New York Times no deal is in place. In its initial statement Friday, GM suggested the program was ready for testing by dealers.

"We hope to support GM's new company and vision going forward," Chesney said. "We are excited about a potential new adventure that supports GM's dealers by expanding on how they already reach consumers through new approaches."

Tom Pyden, a GM vice president of communications, said dealers appear to be enthusiastic about the possibility of an eBay link. He said a trial will determine whether eBay listings actually cut the prices of new cars too much.

Cars would be listed by dealers and not by GM directly, he said.
