GM bought Swedish car company SAAB several years ago. Destroyed its unique cars by simply introducing Chevy underframes with odd looking sheetmetal exteriors and calling them SAABs. But they were not SAABs, they were Chevy cars. Selling the division to the Swedish high performance car company is probably the only real way to save what is left of the brand.
Its a shame that GM couldn’t think its way out of a brown paper sack and had to destroy the brand as quickly and completely as they managed to do. Costly mistake for GM. Tragedy for the brand.
I had the pleasure of driving a real (Pre-GM) SAAB for a couple years. Amazing cars. Smoothest turbo-6 cylinder engine I’ve ever driven. Fast, great performance, but excellent economy and amazing interior space. Ugly too. But you get over that quickly.
I hope the best for the brand.
