For the near term GM will be providing the Saturn Vue, Saturn Aura and Saturn Outlook to the Penske Auto Group for sale in the Saturn dealerships. This will continue for the next three years with possibilities to extend the contract at the end of the contract. Why three years? That is the current model life cycle for the three cars named above, so for both GM and Penske that is a logical first step. While they are limping along with those three models, Penske will shop Saturn around to other manufacturers worldwide to try and find new small and economical cars to sell under the Saturn brand.

Bottom line—While Penske might be able to save Saturn, it would have be nice if GM would have allowed them to save Pontiac instead given its rich history. However, with Penske behind the wheel of Saturn we might just see it race to the top of the small car market.
