Dow Jones has just named billionaire Roger Penske as a potential buyer for Saturn. Many may recognize this name from NASCAR. In NASCAR, Penske owns a fleet of Dodge race cars employing popular drivers such as Kurt Busch and David Stremme. However, his experience in the automotive industry is much more extensive than just racing. He owns the Penske Automotive Group, a collection of automotive retail establishments, and sells a wide array of brands like Lexus, Jeep, BMW, both domestically (156 franchises) and internationally (148 franchises). Perhaps his most recent accomplishment is becoming the exclusive distributor of the Smart car in the United States.

What Does Saturn Have in Common with the Energizer Bunny?

Energizer Bunny

Mike Morrissey, from the Saturn Communications Team equated Saturns to the popular advertising character, the Energizer Bunny, in a blog written on ImSaturn.com yesterday. Why you may ask? Saturn discovered through a research study conducted by R.L. Polk that 83% of all of the Saturns ever sold in the United States are still actively registered. You may remember that nearly two weeks ago Saturn celebrated the sale of their 4 millionth vehicle in Traverse City, Michigan: a black three door Astra. Of those 4 million vehicles, 3.3 million of them are still in use.
