GM is taking a 20% stake in Fiat Auto (which is Fiat, Alfa Romeo, and
Lancia).

In return Fiat Holdings gets 5% of GM.

Ferrari and Maserati are owned by Fiat Holdings (Controlled by IFIL and
other Agnelli holding companies).

That's why GM doesn't get hold of any part of Ferrari.

Even accounting for the high correlation of their opinions, this is a
statistically unlikely event.

No, because to many questions there's one right answer and infinite number
of wrong answers.
