It is a shame but a long time coming once they became another badge engineering exercise.

It's more than a shame and not one for which GM should be forgiven.

Over the years I have had a 96 V-4, 99 turbo, two 5-door 900 turbos, which were both ex-Erik Carlsson, and a 3-door 900 turbo which was one of the cars that had been raced in the one-make Saab Challenge here in the UK.

They were all great cars with tremendous character and individuality, and that's what I shall remember Saab for.

I found this little video of Erik in action. One of the Saabs I had from him was the same colour, but this is not the one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=GB&v=GUxKdF7BjNE

Sounds like Spyker is coming back again to the table and the Swedish government is getting involved.

Bernie is amongst a group that might save SAAB: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/8447365.stm

Not that I disagree with your sentiments at all, but GM did come it and help Saab through a rough time they might not have otherwise survived.

In my case, Alfas......tho' I race a Porsche, so maybe...

Of course there's a lot of scuttlebutt about Alfa getting tied up with Chysler....and if one American company doesn't get you, another one might.....
