From the Show’s website:
2010 SAAB 9-5 SEDAN: Due its recent sale, Saab has chosen not to display at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. The future direction of Saab is apparently secured with the sale to Dutch manufacturer Spyker Cars NV. This means that the redesigned 2010 Saab 9-5 Sedan and Wagon are coming to market.
The rest of the spiel is a rundown on the Saab 9-5 itself but the important news is in the first sentence.
It’s shame for Chicago Saab nuts who turned out in great numbers in the recent Chicago Saab Support Convoy, but I’m sure Saab will get on to the show circuit soon enough. Just bad timing on this one, I guess.
I’ve shot off an email and I’ll post any updates as they come to hand (hopefully in the morning).
Thanks to Robert P and TGX4776 for the heads-up via comments.
