Di.se: Youngman prepared to buy for 5 billion SEK
January 19, 2012 in News
Rachel Pang is scheduled to come to Sweden next week with her father the companys chairman Pang Qingnian. Willing to put up 5 billion SEK, and another 5 billon SEK to develop the Phoenix platform/NG 900.
Part of the plan is to start up production of 9-3 in 15 weeks time.
DI claim that Youngman has found a way to work around the GM issues. Some part to the 9-3 can be sourced through non-GM channels.
The printed edition of Di claims that engines and gearboxes are being sourced from other companies instead of GM. Would we guess here diesels from Italy. Gerboxes seams to be more complex, but that is just a challenge for the “coming” owners.
There is also some writing that the 9-3 only will be sold in China. Well there are a couple of thousands of unsold NEW or near new Saabs around the world.
Just lets hope Youngman has takes measures and steps to safeguard the museum as one entity intact.
Interesting days to come. Press conference Saturday in Göteborg. Then a Youngman och lawyer meeting next week.
Could this be the fresh new start Saabs so desperately needs? Lets hope for that.
