I found this very interesting article on Autocar’s web page, written by an old SAAB’s friend Hilton Holloway:
The last part sounds really familiar to me:
“I heard an amazing rumour the other day that one Asian mass-maker has an even more audacious…[Read more]
Lot of my everyday work is to review and comment lots of documentation so let me give my comment on this :-):
1. Maybe formal, but anyway important: The Power Point matherial that is included in the document still contains SAAB logo! Didin’t NEVS loose that right few weeks ago? This shows me this: Either SAAB AB is changing their minds these…[Read more]
Personally I don’t have anything against publishing pictures from any other blog, it may be BMW, Audi even GM blog. But I have some considerations about how passive the blog was regarding this news. I have seen the other “competitor” blog from a country south of Sweden having published the news together with an analysis. I starting to get an…[Read more]
saabserb commented on the post, Supplier files for NEVS bankruptcy hearing (updated) 1 year, 9 months ago
A very sad day again! No conspiracy theories here please! As Tim mentioned, smaller suppliers cannot afford to sit and wait. Again a very good reaction from one of the last SAAB friends Jonas Froberg at SVD web page, a quickly written,but very good article. If he is right, then the dream is over for good!
Just this post and I stop posting on this matter:

I don’t want to start an endless discussion here regarding the meaning of Dongfeng involvement but:
1. Mahindra is in for 50+ percent of shares which means they want to take the steering wheel in their own hands. Why would Mahindra want to share the only asset that is worth something with a Chinese company (OK the factory in Trollhattan, but…[Read more]
Exciting news indeed! My only question is why is Dongfeng needed in this constellation? It is not like Mahindra doesn’t have enough money to finance the development of the Phoenix. I think Dongfeng is involved here for the political reasons. Do not forget that Chinese people are highly patriotic, and in order to save face in front of the Chinese…[Read more]
saabserb commented on the post, Does NEVS want to buy the SAAB Cars Museum?, Should they? 2 years, 8 months ago
Does this meeting mean that NEVS will have something to present soon? And that the event will take place in the museum?
Really exciting news! I hope there will be more news to come after my vacation. I bet that you Tim are sitting on more exciting knowledge, I wish I was in your shoes regarding that!
Regarding buying a SAAB car, […]
+1 having in mind the article that Jonas Froberg have today in SVD:
If this is true then I just want to congratulate to NEVS on this fine affair and to wish them good luck!
I just hope that we finally get some information on the brand rights, and not just “negotiations will be continued”!
