But none of those sell well in the USA except Suzuki... and they don't have much of a reputation. At least Subaru is "not a bad" car. Still far from Saab though. It would have ben nice to see Saab engineers collaborate with the Japanese and produce a supercar with the best of both European and Japanese technology and ingenuity. But, that would be making an assumption that GM wanted to actually produce something great - they just want a car to meet a marketing derived need and care little about what counts with us aficionados.
