Default Not so fast

Looks like on "that other Saturn forum" home page that Saturn has had a card up it's sleeve and has been patiently awaiting GM to say what it's plans are for Saturn. Now that GM has said they will shed the brand by 2011, the Saturn Franchise Operations Team is already in action and working on a spin-off of the Saturn brand.

Jill and other important key members of Saturn including over 100 franchise owners have drawn up a plan to break off from under the GM name and go independent. They are looking for a new manufacturer for their cars and will go back to their roots to be a small car company again. No word yet on who that manufacturer will be but the cars will be built in America under Saturn design as they once were supposedly.

Stay tuned for more info as Saturn is gearing up to take this info to the public as they make more information available.

There is lots of speculation out there, lets wait for the facts to appear.

What a coincidence, Opel is saying they might secede from GM too, and Saturn markets Opels here. GM says it wants 4.4B in bailout for Opel from the European govt.
Anyway I can't see how any small carmaker can make it in this economy, and I don't expect any manufacturer to step forward with investment in this economy.

Well now we know that in Canada there will be no Saturn after the 09 MY. Penske and GM have agreed it's not viable without a subcompact.

Penske to buy Saturn from GM
by RjION on Sat Jun 06, 2009 6:53 pm

I wish Roger well ........ and hope like hell he gets the dealers cars people want .... no more ASTRAs thats a good thing.

Ok thats what I want to say and thats how I want to feel.

Now this is what I think.

Roger is buying Saturn?
Who in the world will sell him cars so he can put his SATURN name on them?
Why in the world would GM sell him cars to put the Saturn name on them?
Why in the world would anyone sell him cars so he can put his SATURN name on them?
Who wants to face added competition from Saturn?
This entire Roger/Saturn thing looks all to hokey to me.

In other words RIP SATURN
GM and Rodger are doing something but has nothing to do with the sale of SATURN
