Death In Trollhattan – Saab and Insolvency

In reaction to yesterday’s negative press about an appointment being made at bankruptcy court, NEVS managed to convince the petitioner to withdraw his claim. That’s good news. NEVS’s anaemic PR division followed this up with a press release: Nevs hereby clarify that the company is...

Saab People Buying Cars That Aren’t Saabs

There was some chagrin recently when Tim mentioned in comments on Saabs United that he was thinking of buying a BMW. How could someone so dedicated ever consider another brand? Some people expressed surprise, others disappointment. My advice: build a bridge and get over it....

Previous nose-battles: Saab 900 classic Saab 99 Saab 9-5 It’s now time for the Saab 96, which is as far back as we’ll go in the Saab model catalogue. I’m going to do things a little different here, too. Because the Saab 96 was available...
