It’d be interesting to know if any markets around the world have Saab 9-5 that sells for more than the price in Singapore.
The price for an Aero – which comes pretty much as a fully loaded car – is SGD$266,888. That’s Singaporean dollars, which converts to around $208,000 in US pesos.
With its Scandinavian branding and style, the Saab 9-5 is the alternative choice in the mid-sized luxury saloon segment. At the same time, its technology means this is the most sophisticated and technically advanced Saab ever produced. All these should add up to a very promising future.
“Lawsuit against Saab for unpaid rent” is a headline in E24 today. Hopefully people in Sweden will read the full story below the headline.
A landlord is claiming what he/she/it believes is unpaid rent. Saab have only paid 25% of the original rent agreed when they first leased the property. Saab believe that the amount they’ve paid is correct because of the ‘composition’ agreement they made last year with creditors during their restructuring process. This agreement wrote down 75% of debts owing to creditors.
No need for panic. Each party has an argument to make and the court will decide.
Inside Line have posted a review of the Saab 9-5 V6 Aero today and whilst it makes some good reading, one has to wonder Why?
The article is a review of the 2010 model. Why publish a review of the 2010 model when the 2011 is very much available?
As mentioned, the article is quite fair and makes for some very good reading. I just don’t understand why they’ve done it the way they’ve done it.
A suggestion has been made to me that they might have taken a review published previously by sister publication, Edmunds.com, and added some 2011 context to it. I don’t know, but it seems unlikely to me. All I know is it seems strange.
10 stupid publications that will disappear in 2011.
That’s the headline of an article I’d write if I had both the time and the inclination. #1 on the list would be DailyFinance.com.
Look, no-one thinks the road ahead for Saab will be easy, but basing your judgment of their survival purely on 2010 sales in the US, with no other context provided, is just stoooopid.
By the way, their article is headed “10 American Companies That Will Disappear in 2011” and the first of the American companies listed is “Saab USA”.
The fact that Saab aren’t American to start with, and that Saab USA is no longer an existing entity seems to have passed them by.
