Other then this article: http://www.nextautos.com/spy-shots-b...and-opel-astra

which speculates that this MIGHT happen (and that the photo in question might be a Buick) , I have not seen nor heard that Buick will definitely be getting any other Opel designs with exception to the Insignia design. (Google Buick + Insignia)

I have heard nothing official that "Buick has replaced Saturn as Opel's US partner". However as Buick and Opel have a long history the marriage would make complete sense.
Whatever badge Opels make it here under, I'd buy one. I am very happy with my Astra.
I like Frankski's ideas although not too probable.
