Damn those are fnospamg ugly cars. >Saab would benefit from being detached from all those projects IMHO. Saab would benefit from being a seperate marque all on it's own again. I don't see any reason why GM wants Saab except (for reasons I outlined in a couple of posts earlier) because Saab has rights to technology that GM wants to own. Most notably with regard to turbochargers and some aspects of engine design, but there's bound to be a lot more than just that. >97x looks to me like Saab meets GMC ! It's typical GM - just look at all their 'trucks' (aka SUV's, or whatever the 'giant pickup' market wants to label them) and see how that shape is coming into every new vehicle GM's designers stick their noses into.
