Where did you hear this? A news article or just random talk you've overheard. I'd be more likely to believe an article from a reputable auto news source than anything else

This came from a good source. At this time I can not say. I hope it is true. Time will tell.

If anything, I would think the Spring Hill, TN plant would be a wiser choice. While I no doubt would love to see the employees be working at both plants... the TN location is newer, with a more recent overhaul... and soon to be idled as they move Traverse production to join the other 3 Lambdas. It is also the birthplace of Saturn.

Now... Wilmington would also make sense if the new Saturn is making Renaults or their subsidiaries vehicles... and need to be closer to a port to ship overseas as an overflow location.

1) Why would Penske want to burden himself with that sort of overhead when he can just rebadge cars?
2) Assuming he DID take on that much debt, develop R&D, develop design assets, build a huge physical and human infrastructure, why would he want to do so in union states?

I would bet that if the Penske program works using first Saturn's waning production schedule and then Renault for inventory, he will sell the network to Renault and walk away with a BUCKET full of cash. Forget all the emotion - think of the financial aspects and potential.

If he buys Wilmington, no where have I found information to support that theory, he won't be building the Sky or the Solstice.

We've been through this already...Bigfoot and Elvis have bought the plant and are secretly building Kappas for Michael Jackson.

I guess that means Tupac and Notorious BIG will have to settle for buying the Spring Hill plant:eek:
