Rumormill: GM could rebadge the Saab 9-1 as a Saturn, Pontiac?




We've learned a multitude of things working the automotive beat on the 'Net. Among them: the German press is great for rumors and GM will badge engineer damn near anything. A piece from Auto Motor und Sport lives up to both expectations, with a story saying that the impending arrival of the Saab 9-1 hatch in Geneva will spawn a Saturn derivative and possibly a Pontiac version. According to AMuS, The Saab is likely to be powered by a hybrid system soon after it's launched and the Saturn version could feature a removable roof between the A- and B-pillar. Other blatant speculation includes the possibility of a (God help us) Buick version. We're going to stop laughing and get back to work.

That car is such a rip off of Alfa Romeo's styling, which is coming to North America [red car not the original post]. In fact it looks like a real Alfa not a GM car.

That's supposed to be a GM???? I was about to ask what Alfa that was, not what brand Gm would be selling it under.
