Have you ever wondered how many cars a premium brand needs to sell to be profitable? GM has given us a little insight to this question by stating on Tuesday that the currently loss-making Saab brand has the potential to be in a break-even situation at "well below 200,000 units."

Saab currently produces approximately 120,000 units per year. Saab's profitability, or lack thereof, has been looking grim mainly due to competitors eating into the Swedish carmakers marketshare.

A recent round of cost-cuts to the tune of $117.2 million is in part responsible for the positive financial outlook of the company.
