Victor Speaks to Bloomberg in New York

Characteristically upbeat about Saab’s prospects, Victor Muller answered some fair and interesting questions from Matt Miller at Bloomberg. While regulars here know all the answers before Victor even needs to open his mouth, it’s reassuring to hear him show what an obvious case one can make for Saab’s success. Saab will be the alternative car brand, the one for those who don’t want to be lemmings or follow the luxury herd. Remember when buyers chose between a 911 and an SPG? It’s about time customers had to weigh that decision again. You can’t help but love Victor.

Victor at his element!!

He is so passionate and confident about Saabs future that it just has to be infectious. Journos beware – or OTOH donยดt, let it just sink in bigtime ๐Ÿ™‚

He truly is a machine — a very passionate and likable one, that is ๐Ÿ™‚ Too bad the interview starts with “Saab has to borrow money from the EIB to re-start production” though…

Well, that is not so urgent at least. The important thing is that the sale of the properties is approved by the NDO, and that is finished now with only the EIB left to approve the deal.

There is a report in Dutch media that everybody at the EIB is on Easter holiday already and that no deal is to be expected before Easter…
