Saab has put tons of work into the 2.0 and 2.3 litre engines and they are firmly committed to keeping these things around forever. The *only* reason Saab is putting the V6 in *any* car is to appeal to American buyers who think a $30,000+ car shouldn't have a four... if it was up to Saab, they'd use nothing but fours, and preferably with a turbo, even if it's LPT. Don't worry about it... we'll keep getting those lovely forced induction four cylinders for a long time to come... -Justin
