Car writers laud them, customers love them, and the cash registers are going "ka-ching." To accomplish this tough transformation, General Motors and Saturn did something that was at once, so obvious, and so necessary that one wonders why they didn't think of it before: They raided the corporate pantry, found some awesome new products that GM's German car company, Opel, was selling, and made a few modifications, transforming them into Saturns.
