GM on hunt after Saab owners

First General Motors killed Saab, now GM is after the Saab owners.

According to Jalopnik, GM sent a memo to its dealerships earlier this week where GM announces lousy incentives to try to lure the Saab owners to the bland GM brands. Here is what Jalopnik reports that the memo says:

Beginning January 4, 2012 and continuing through February 29, 2012, select General Motors SAAB customers are eligible for the SAAB Private Offer off the purchase or lease of new vehicles. Refer to program 12-40CR for official guidelines and vehicle eligibility.
SAAB Private Offer:
• $250 Chevy Equinox, Sonic, & Volt, GMC Terrain, & Buick Verano
• $500 all other Buick, Chevy and GMC vehicles
• $1,000 all Cadillacs, Chevy Corvette, Avalanche, Silverado, and GMC Sierra

Like killing Saab was not enough? What will GM's next move be? Buying Saab's Phoenix technology and scrap it?
