The discussion of the GM efforts with early turbocharging was informative as I always wondered why the dropped it as quickly as they tried it. Sounds like the typical GM engineering failures plus the technology just not being ready yet for production cars. I guess you can’t completely fault them for trying because of the fuel savings potential of a smaller engine when the industry was mostly interested in ever larger engines using more and more fuel. Seems like they don’t give Saab sufficient credit for a small company pulling off something the big manufacturers couldn’t or wouldn’t. Does this mean that now everyone is becoming quirky with the small, turbocharged engines?
