Penske Racing + Saturn Sky = yes please!

This could be great, will have to wait and see. Being who he is, you'd expect there to be some performance in the lineup. I hope so anyway.

I have a feeling he'll be importing Chinese made cars... the details of the deal seem to suggest that's whats going on anyways.

Ironic that in the end, a brand GM created to go toe to toe with imports, is likely to become a lineup of imports. Still nice to see that there is interest in the brand though, and a good news story for thousands of employees across the continent.

Yes, really... Even if they do look at importing from offshore companies, that's not a likely prospect in the immediate future. This move will give employees income and hope in the short term, and time to potentially train up for other work etc. Also, the retail network won't be completely dissolved. That will save thousands of long term jobs. Lastly, this will ease the strain on some of the parts suppliers, as replacement parts will still be made in North America, again saving more jobs.

Maybe we'll start finding some great double adjustable shocks in some cheap Korean cars?
