IEDEI Solutions: Hey Volkswagen! Buy Saab!

Yeah, that’s right.  I think VW should buy Saab.  Why? Here are my reasons.

1. SAAB hasn’t made a profit in years, and likely has debts.  VW has a huge amount of money at the moment, and is one of the only companies that can absorb the debt AND has the ability to bring Saab back into the global auto market with shared platforms, new engines, and most of all a brand identity.

2. Volkswagen’s global auto empire.  the Volkswagen Auto Group spans from Germany to Spain to Czech to Italy to all sorts of smaller conglomerates in China and South America, and what better international frontier than Scandinavia.  Yeah, VW needs a Swedish side to it.

3. F*ck Koeniggsegg….BUY THEM AS WELL if you want.

4. Relaunch a Saab 900 on the VW Golf platform, as a smaller, more practical solution built with a SAAB image……and with SAAB personality.

5. Launch the ‘new’ 9-5 (which i love the styling of….) on a VW/AUDI platform (A4 or A6?).

6. Make it a specialized brand with profitability and character.

7. Cancel silly developments like those Saab SUVs that GM was doing….

8. IEDEI told you to.

COME ON VOLKSWAGEN! you know you want some Swedish in yer.

saab is on fire.

not in a good way. in a bad way.

Koeniggsegg announced today that they are NOT going to purchase Saab….those supercar making bastards have changed their mind—–AGAIN.

So SAAB is really on it’s last life now.  Will it burn and fade away like Pontiac and Saturn? Is there something else that’s gonna save it?

VOLKSWAGEN? Imagine that.

Good Story: Ola and his 1982 Audi Quattro Coupe.

eurp_0906_22_z+1982_audi_coupe_quattro+ola.jpg

What a cool story this is! 21 year-old swede Ola Johansson bought a 1982 Audi Quattro Coupe for 150 Euros, with the dream of turning it into a replica 1987 Pikes Peak S1 Quattro.  He had no previous experience in designing/building/engineering, and not much money to start off…..so basically he got to work!! Several months later he had a working (but dirty) version he showed at a local car show.  Certain people were very impressed by his work—including people working at Koeniggsegg, who offered him a job there (!). A transformation of his car from a rusty junked Coupe to a serious Pikes Peak replica—-complete with a modded-by-koeniggsegg Porsche-sourced Audi RS2 engine!

how Denmark produces evil: Zenvo ST1

2009-zenvo-st1-front-angle-3-1920x1440jpg

I’m not a big fan of  modern supercars….most of them aren’t evil enough….they’re more for the dumb-with-small-cocks (oh hello there FERRARI!) of society who have the money, but don’t have the soul.  There are exceptions to this of course…..ahem….several exceptions.  This is definitely one of them.  Probably the most evil supercar i’ve seen lately…..and even cooler as it is the first supercar ever from Denmark!

I don’t even care if it is able to handle the 1100+ hp engine, or if it will be able to handle any turns (although the video on the official site is quite praising of its handling), because it looks INCREDIBLE.  Evil just might have returned to supercars…….introducing the Zenvo ST1.
