Re: GM agrees Saab sale to Koenigsegg

I like the direction Saab is going if Koenigsegg can mass produce cars.
Who knows BMW might finally get some competition (may be).

Re: GM agrees Saab sale to Koenigsegg

So what are the implications for those of us who still have warranty coverage?  I'm the 3rd owner of my linear, but the 2nd owner bought it as a CPO, so that warranty now transfers to me.  I've got about 2 more years left...

Re: GM agrees Saab sale to Koenigsegg

That was the only reason I bought 92x knowing it was Japanese built not GM.

For sake of Saab brand, I am glad they not sold to someone who will butcher the brand, but may be try to revive the unique car design and appeal to few people.

Re: GM agrees Saab sale to Koenigsegg

If they go out and make the Aero X something godly, it could do wonders for Saab. Of course they're not going too though...

Think we'll see any new interesting models?

Koenigsegg doesnt really make reliable cars, they dont have to be when you have that kind of money.

Re: GM agrees Saab sale to Koenigsegg

So I get weird looks when I tell people what the 9-2x is.  I can only imagine what Koenigsegg buying Saab will do. 

"I drive a Saab 9-2x.  It's a Saab branded Subaru WRX wagon.  Unfortunately, Saab went out of business and is now owned by Koenigsegg."  confused confused confused
