I'm interested in learning more though, if you could point me to some sources; I would like that outcome because Scania knows engines and turbocharging very well. Is it unrealistic to wish that someone like BMW would buy SAAB, and then let SAAB be their FWD and turbo development division, with some crossover in AWD vehicles?
