History[edit]

Penske Automotive was founded as United Automotive Group in 1990 and was acquired by Penske Corporation and Roger Penske in May 1999. On July 2, 2007, United Automotive Group changed its corporate name to Penske Automotive Group, Inc; and changed its ticker symbol on the NYSE to PAG.

On June 5, 2009, it was announced that Penske Automotive would purchase the Saturn brand and its assets from the bankrupt General Motors. Less than four months later, on September 30, Penske announced it would no longer acquire Saturn from GM due to manufacturing uncertainties.[1]
