Many observers, including a longtime Saturn dealer who owns three Nashville-area outlets, said they think Saturn will survive as a brand, perhaps sold to a rival foreign manufacturer. He said he has "no idea" what manufacturer that might be, but analysts have suggested that among the suitors for Saturn might be a European company or perhaps a Chinese automaker looking for an easy entry to the U.S. market with an established dealer network.
