Saturn PreVue

American designer Phillip A. Zak has just been appointed to head the design team for General Motors Europe, where he'll be taking the reigns of the Opel, Vauxhall and Saab brands. The man behind the Chevy Cobalt, Pontiac G6 and the "Excitement" division's GXP line, will also have a hand in designing "certain Saturn products for North America."

In addition to the aforementioned production models, Zak has also stuffed his portfolio with several concept cars including the Pontiac REV and the Saturn Prevue, two designs that have had a direct influence on the styling direction of both brands.

We're interested to see what will come out of the GM's European studio with Zak at the helm, especially considering the recent propagation of Euro designs in the Saturn lineup.

      He's responsible for the Cobalt? I doubt he'll go far.
      Unless you can actually win an award for "Most ridiculous looking car in it's class"

      Maybe if he learns to keep the bug eyes on spiders and not on cars he might do something interesting.

      Well the way I see it the Saabs look great and so do the Saturns over here. I don't know how much body work is shared by Saturn and opel / Vauxhall, but I hope not much. I figure those brands can really only go down in looks. I hope whoever was penning the Saab's comes state side.

      The Antara was exactly what I'm looking for in my next vehicle and I would have bought it without a test drive the minute it hit the showroom floor. It's a shame what happened to it on its' way to Saturn. You couldn't pay me to drive the thing it turned into.
