Koenigsegg Group AB Terminates Agreement For Purchase of Saab
DETROIT -- General Motors confirmed today that the proposed sale of its Saab subsidiary to Koenigsegg Group AB was terminated at the discretion of the buyer.
"We're obviously very disappointed with the decision to pull out of the Saab purchase," said GM President and CEO, Fritz Henderson. "Many have worked tirelessly over the past several months to create a sustainable plan for the future of Saab by selling the brand and its manufacturing interests to Koenigsegg Group AB. Given the sudden change in direction, we will take the next several days to assess the situation and will advise on the next steps next week."
fuck up Saturn
fuck up Saab
you live in sweden?
I couldn't care less about Saab though, they've only made one good car and that's the 9-3 Aero.
I'll probably get shanked for that statement.
Saab and Saturn were two of the brands they owned that I liked. Somehow Cadillac is still around, they are still making pickup trucks, Chevy's economy cars are nothing to brag about. What a load of failure.
Sorry, i forgot about the 9000Aero. Viggen can suck a nut.
Isn't the GM Open brand on the rocks to?
And how long before Fiat pulls out of the festering asshole that is Chrysler?
what the fuck are you smoking?
blame obama for everything
Segg dodged a bullet, there was no way they could do anything at all with Saab and it would've destroyed them.
Saab has been a zombie company for well over 15 years and was about dead when GM came in and dumped billions and billions into them for nothing.
Saab is toast, even the Chinese aren't stupid enough to buy it.
Yes, and GM almost sold the entire thing off then decided to keep it afterall. Basically they would have ceded their entire European marketshare to whomever ended up with Opel. But Opel is a nearly bankrupt mess right now too and has to restructure.
Fuck cars with technology, if we cannot cram a V8 under the hood it's no good.
It's the American way.
Wait, wait...WHAT? GM fucked up itself LONG before this year.
I want my Fiat Abarth 500.
The new Ford Taurus and Fusion are perfect examples
Newsflash, people the world over do not buy Saabs. At all. And haven't even before GM bought them out. If GM hadn't it would have ceased to exist a decade ago.
The best thing GM can do with it is kill it. You can't do anything with a brand that people don't want to buy. There's nothing about Saab that's worth or can be saved.
BORN FROM JETS
shhh he loves his diesels.
