By observing what has gone wrong with the current Saturn, they should be able to make some improvements to their current model, and emerge as a new and successful company.
I wouldn't count on GM to "resurrect" Saturn in the future at anytime. Fritzy and Lutz hated the idea of Saturn from Day 1; although they'll be all "Sad" to the brand killed off. Lovely how facades work.

I'll agree there was a great business model there to work with...one that GM DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO OPERATE. Then again, when you have the same old executives in place with a "new" idea...good luck trying to "Convince" them on the newer idea. Just won't work.


On a side note...this is my 4000th post. I wish it was a more happy post, instead of being about such a somber topic.
