Wow, that's impressive, I'm curious what they have in store for SAAB. They will obviously have to change a lot of things about the company considering no one is buying them (Sounds familiar). I wonder how the SAAB Design language will change now.<p>So, Born from Jets, Born from Supercars?

Other than that, he will be looking to other manufacturers that want to penetrate the US market and don't have an established dealer network (similar to SMART cars that Penske sells). Penske is not a manufacturer.
