It is increasingly clear GM's beleaguered Saturn brand will be orbiting around a foreign auto maker.
This doesn't mean Saturn will become a brand operating under the umbrella of a foreign company.
More likely is a scenario where Saturn vehicles are supplied by a foreign auto maker and then sold as Saturn models.
It's a business plan that lets GM unload its Saturn Distribution Network while giving Saturn dealers with a new lifeline.
GM has confirmed it is talking with one group that includes Saturn dealers and the private equity firm Black Oak.
