If the plant is under-utilized why not build more variants of existing products? E.g. where's the 9-3 Coupe? Wagon? Crossover?

GM is ruining Saab at every step and it's REALLY pissing me off. If they can't figure them out - WHICH THEY OBVIOUSLY CAN'T AND NEVER WILL - sell it to Ford or VW or someone else you can! GM simply has no understanding of niche manufactureing and never will - what on earth made them think they could make a success of Saab?

Very true. The Deawoo and Suzuki partnerships make sense since they are viable companies on their own and fill gaps in GMs lineup (cheap cars for Deawoo, small cars for Suzuki). Plus Suzuki is a Japanese nameplate they can exploit.

Subaru and Saab, OTOH, have no place in the GM empire. Subaru gives nothing and takes nothing from GM (it can surivive on its own very well), while GM simply doesn't have the resources Saab needs (Ford and VW would be a much better fit). Both should be cut loose.
