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.

So, Born from Jets, Born from Supercars?

Well...not that I would ever buy a SAAB, but they are most likely much better off...under new 'domestic' ownership instead of a wallowing and withering foreign corporation.

That fact is pretty cool though, nice to know.

As small as Sweden is, I wouldn't mind or be surprised if all three...became one!

this is the best company that saab could be bought by

Until, of course, the new Saab starts producing seriously nice, fast and luxurious cars that even fellow Sveeedish automaker Volvo would have trouble competing with.


As a side note, General Motors could end up facing some very serious competition in the future from its former divisions if they turn out to be run more competently and competitively than back when GM owned them.

Saturn won't "produce" anything. Penske bought the brand as a distribution channel.

Based on the story I read when the deal was announced, Penske has contracted wth GM to continue the Aura, Vue, and Outlook production for Saturn. 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.
