I have to agree! I was hoping against hope that Saturn would import some really innovative cars, perhaps even rebadged Opels (the nicer turbo-charged models that Saturn never got close to).

Alas, the market is glutted with 4-wheel cages, so Penske probably did the smartest thing.

RIP, Saturn....

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
