GM Says It Doesn’t Miss Defunct Brands — Not Even Saab

When General Motors finally said goodbye Pontiac, Saab, Hummer and Saturn in 2010, it was a sad day for enthusiasts, moms and dudes with tribal tattoos alike. But speaking at a recent Automotive News World Congress, GM CEO Mary Barra couldn’t give a damn about those four brands. No, not even Saab. According to spokeswoman Ryndee Carnery, GM keeps in regular contact with customers of defunct brands and tries to get them into a new GM product. They pretty much want to distance themselves from that period of automotive history. The company even offers brand-to-brand incentives so that you can, for example, trade in your old Pontiac G8 for a new SS at a lower cost.

But if you were hoping for a revival of any of these brands — other than Saab, which has a new owner — don’t hold your breath.
