GM Readies Break with Saturn

Michelle Krebs from AutoObserver: Nobody's leveling much skepticism of Penske Automotive Group's plan to be running Saturn by the end of next month because, ah, Penske isn't exactly known as a guy who messes up.

Default Re: GM Readies Break with Saturn

Did anybody else notice this quote from the full "AutoObserver" article, regarding Hummer:


....the company would continue to be based in the U.S., probably in Detroit or Nashville, Tennessee. And speculation continues as to what sort of deal might be struck to profitably use an existing GM U.S. manufacturing site for continued and future Hummer production. When it became known the two companies had reached a memorandum of agreement, they announced the plan for a U.S.-based manufacturing structure would save 3,000 jobs here.

3,000 jobs? Nashville, Tennessee? Are we talking about the former Saturn Spring Hill,TN plant?

No, based in meaning the location of their headquarters being there or Detroit. GM has kept the Spring Hill plant

I'm really looking forward to the time when Saturn and GM part ways! After all GM bailed on Saturn years ago and now it will be Saturn's turn to shine as Penske makes Saturn a GM competitor!

You and me both.

They are right in that restoring Saturn's good name-the brand perception that GM SQUANDERED-will be the Penske team's biggest and most immediate challenge.

Default Re: GM Readies Break with Saturn

In five years we'll know how the Penske Saturn relationship rides out.

It will be great if Penske could market desirable US manufactured automobiles...

I said many times it would have been in GM's best interest to shut down Saturn like they did Pontiac.
