GM Says It Has 16 Different Buyers For Saturn, Three for Saab


With news of a tentative deal to sell off Hummer coming yesterday, GM still hasn't made any decisions about its Saturn or Saab brands - but apparently it has plenty of offers to entertain.

GM CFO Ray Young said that Saturn has as many as 16 suitors, while the Swedish Saab brand has three.

The list of Saturn buyers is reported to include Penske Automotive Group, Malcolm Bricklin, Mitsubishi, Nissan/Renault and investment firm Telesto Ventures.

Young did say that it is interested in working with the Saturn buyer when it comes to vehicle assembly.

As for Saab, Swedish business paper Dagens Industri is reporting that the three buyers are U.S. financier Ira Rennert and his Renco Group, Fiat and Swedish supercar maker Koenigsegg.

It would be good for Saab to be owned by Koenigsegg. They might actually breathe some life into the bland image they currently have.

Wow Koenigsegg would be cool, they build some sexy machines! I'd like to see Penske get Saturn, if not then Nissan wouldn't be too bad, as long as they keep the Renault part away. I used to go out with a girl that has a renault alliance, what a pos! Anybody remember the Le-Car? LOL
