Thanks to everyone (and that’s a LOT of people) who emailed me overnight about the great news coming in about the Trollhattan plant’s selection to be one of the venues for GM Delta production starting 2010. This is fantastic news. Trollhattan is essential to Saab’s heritage and future and keeping the plant open is a crucial element, obviously, in the production of Saabs in their home country.
Also, we have the 9-4x spyshots that have been published on LeftLane News and WorldCarFans. Sorry, i really don’t have tim to track down and provide links right now, but you should be able to find them. I have some more Djup Strupe info coming about the 9-4x, but will try and get that up later.
I’d love to write more about this, but I literally have about 30 minutes of internet time a day at the moment as I’m in a remote area of Tasmania for work. I spent 25 of those 30 minutes today reading all the email.
Consider the comments thread here as an open thread for discussion of those two items, above, or the appointment of Steve Shannon in the US.
And by the way, look out for a blog post from Steve Shannon at GM’s Fastlane weblog, coming soon.
I’ll be back to normal access in about 48 hours. The number of emails in my inbox this morning was quite overwhelming. Thanks to everyone for your support.
