Rumor: GM planning to rebadge Saab 9-5 as a Buick

2010 Saab 9-5

As General Motors gets ready to sell or wind down Saab, the automaker is rumored to be planning on saving the 9-5 sedan as a rebadged Buick. According to a report by Dagens, GM is seeing positive opportunities to closing Saab including selling Beijing Automotive Industry Holdings Co. Ltd (BAIC) of certain Saab 9-3, current 9-5 and powertrain technology and tooling.

Of course, you should take this report with a grain of salt since Buick already has a successful mid-size sedan – the 2010 LaCrosse.

Sources are also saying that GM may export some of Saab’s technology for a new premium Opel vehicle.
