    Frankly, Subaru would have made a lot more sense than the Mini Coupe. Subaru stole Saab's niche: Sturdy, quirky, capacious cars for snowy regions that are often owned by political progressives. Mini? Not so much.

    @John, besides, MINIs don't have nearly enough torque steer.

    Leave it the Germans! Owning one of their over-engineered POC cars was one too many! Saab's demise is really too bad for a nitche brand that has become very good looking.
