There’s been various rumours and hopes for a new version of the Saab Sonett. I haven’t reported any of them here because up until now, as far as I could see, that’s all they were – rumours and hopes.
Enter Jay Spenchian, who will enter the Saab Hall of Fame if he can convince GM to a decent job of bringing a new Sonett to market.
Edmunds are reporting the following:
Jay Spenchian, the general manager of Saab Cars USA, told Inside Line the Swedish automaker’s next concept car may be a Sonett-inspired vehicle.
When asked if the General Motors brand plans to resurrect the Sonett nameplate, which has a cultlike following among Saab aficionados, Spenchian said, “Maybe as one of our upcoming concepts. We may test the waters. But nothing firm for production.”
Could they really be doing this, or are we just suckers for any old Saab story?? There seems to be so many of them lately. I ain’t complaining, but you’ve got to wonder if they could all be true.
