From the article:

Translation: The UK were insane not to use it as a credible threat.
Oh yes - the credible threat being that the heads of the German Car industry would be banging repeatedly on
Angela Merkel's door, imploring her to persuade the EU to come to a UK biased Brexit deal.

Well it never happened and the consensus from the German Car manufacturers was basically the UK can go jump
- as far as bending over backwards to the British for a Brexit deal is concerned.
