I won’t go to heroic efforts to keep my Saab on the road. It’s a great car—-low mileage 2004 in superb mechanical and cosmetic condition. It’s been garage kept its entire life and dealer serviced, meticulously. That said: I will do repairs on the car that don’t break the bank—-infrequent repairs under a thousand dollars are doable for me…[Read more]
I think a good guess is “many years away, if at all.” Frankly, if NEVS somehow retains use of the Saab name, it’ll primarily be electric cars in China, so I almost don’t count that as Saabs being made again. To me, any return of Saab would need to mean cars for Sweden and other European markets and at some point, hopefully a return to North…[Read more]
My 10 year old LOVES LEGOLAND in Florida. We haven’t been there for a couple years—-but when we were there, he strongly preferred it over Disney. I didn’t drive my Saab there—-it was Washington, DC to Florida and we rented a van.
I wonder where they bought those shovels? Did they pay cash or put it on credit? Hopefully the hardware store has recourse if they don’t pay for them.
Sometimes, young people can’t afford the “new technologies” even if they embrace them. How many “young people” are driving around in $80,000 Teslas? Sure, they might be propping up Musk by going on social media and saying how much they love the cars, but with maybe $25,000 to spend, they won’t be getting one anytime soon. Further, NEVS seems to…[Read more]
Fine. Let’s call on Saab AB to put a stop to this then. It’s really on Saab AB, not NEVS. If NEVS isn’t supposed to be using the name, yet they are—-that’s just NEVS being NEVS, disregarding the rules. The onus is on Saab AB to get one of their legal team to write a cease and desist letter to shut down that website or at least remove any…[Read more]
Avelik: You and I don’t often agree with each other’s viewpoints, but I have always respected your thought process and practicality. I wonder—-where do you see this saga in let’s say, five years? Specifically, will NEVS or their partners be producing cars with the Saab name? Will NEVS be producing any cars? Will KJJ still be running the…[Read more]
It’s very bizarre. Usually, these “ground breaking” PR shots are close up, and it’s maybe one or two people with shovels. The distance that this photo was taken from and the fact that there are at least eleven people if not more—-is spooky.
Now that’s not very nice, Ken.
“Getting?”. I think NEVS wrote the book on silly.
Guys: 1) Jesse: All of those huge, established companies are flush with money for R&D and some already have EVs and hybrids. They can turn on a dime if market conditions suddenly and inexplicably turn to EVs—-and blow NEVS out of the water with better EVs for a lower price than anything these people at NEVS can come up with. Saabdog hit the…[Read more]
I’m picturing KJJ with a white uniform and one of those cone-shaped paper hats with the “NEVS LEMONADE” logo on it, pouring a nice tall lemoade and squeezing fresh lemon in—-bowing and handing it to a customer.
I don’t think we know. We can guess though. I venture a guess that they haven’t completely lost the rights to the name yet—-but that is right around the corner. I would say that they already lost the name, but the fact that their good for nothing website is still up showing “Saab” leads me to believe there is some technicality that prevents…[Read more]
Nick: That’s the crazy thing though. At this point, I honestly believe there’s a better chance at seeing Pontiacs built again than Saabs. There have been a few rumblings at GM about building a Firebird or other Pontiac model and selling it through GMC Trucks. It’s an extreme long shot, but we’re now staring at an extreme, extreme longshot with…[Read more]
There’s a lot of profits to be made and power to be gained through hysteria. It’s the oldest trick in the book—-scare people into allowing themselves to be controlled. This is seriously ridiculous that we have to have an argument about “taking action” to make the climate what we want it to be. It’s beyond silly. I wonder if these people…[Read more]
A “couple” of years? Good luck with that.
Maybe he should put a rocket into space without blowing it up. Then he can come back to figuring out how electric cars can replace the gold standard—-gas and diesel.
