Saab story

edited January 2012 in General
Saab is bankrupt. So here's the plan: TM buys Saab, and turns it into an EV powerhouse in Europe! That would be a Swede ending to a tragic tale.

    You can edit the first message if you are a thread starter. "Edit" and "view" -links seem to go partially hidden in the Tesla logo in my FF. That's probably a bug in forum software (I don't think those should be there).

    I agree that TM should make a bid for Saab. It would be nice new beginning for the brand, also Saab already had a BEV program of their own, so TM buying it and continuing that program with combined techs and designs would be pretty cool, probably also profitable.

    Does Tesla have enough money to buy another car company? They need to turn a profit and pay back their DOE loan first I think. Would be great for Saab though.
