What Would Penske Do if He Bought Saturn?

Samsung SM3

Michael Sheena from the Examiner: Okay, so Penske is interested in Saturn. What would he do with it? Word on the street is that he'd sell Samsung cars and crossovers. It's not as outlandish as you might think. Samsung is largely owned by Renault-Nissan and uses corporate underpinnings for its vehicles. The corporate parts sharing should make the Samsung vehicles easily adaptable to US regulations. The pictured car is essentially the 2010 Samsung SM3 with some auto show fluff on it. The 2010 SM3 is based on the Renault M├ęgane which was recently redesigned itself. Another Samsung model that Penske might import would be the QM5. This crossover is related to the Renault Koleos, Nissan Qashqai, and Nissan Rogue.
