General Motors introduced the mid-size transverse engine front-wheel drive GM2900 platform in 1988 with the introductions of the Opel Vectra A and the Vauxhall Cavalier Mk.3 for the 1989 model year. The platform was intended to replace both division's J-cars, the Opel Ascona C and the Vauxhall Cavalier Mk.2, although the platform eventually branched out to Holden, Chevrolet's Latin American branch, and even Saab and Saturn. The GM2900 platform was replaced by the Epsilon platform in 2003, although Saab continued to use the lengthened GM2902 platform for its 9-5 model until 2010, when it was switched to the Epsilon 2 platform. The tooling for the first generation Saab 9-5 was sold to BAIC and with help from Saab engineers they will develop new models for production under the Senova brand.

Модели на её основе производил латиноамериканский филиал Chevrolet, подразделения GM Saturn, Holden и даже Saab. В 2003 году на смену GM2900 пришла платформа Epsilon I, хотя Saab продолжила использовать удлинённую и немного модернизированную версию GM2902 на своей Saab 9-5 вплоть до 2010 года, когда было представлено второе поколение, уже на базе Epsilon II. В дальнейшем промышленное оборудование, производившее первое поколение 9-5, было продано , которая с помощью инженеров Saab начала разработку новых моделей под брендом . (ru)
