Agree with this dude. Worst case scenario we can find other parts that will work on our cars. There can't be that many parts that are exclusive ONLY to Saab.
Rotors. Exhaust. Springs. Windows Regulators. Hoses. These can't possibly be Saab only parts...

Except the keys. I JUST WANT A SPARE KEY PLEASE!!!!!

All it takes is ONE vital part that's SAAB exclusive, and your car could be out of commission. I am not real well versed on what's shared between various SAAB models and other GM cars, but I think the idea that you can just swap any part you need from some other GM car is very optimistic.

Another thing to consider is that many of the cars SAAB shares parts with are GM Euro products. So good luck getting parts for an Opel Vectra or a Cadillac BLS if you're in the US.
