It seems like they are! According to a report on Saabs United, there are 7 companies currently bidding for the bankrupt swedish remains of SAAB, one of them is noted as a large european carmaker—-which by some accounts hails from Munich. Well that would only mean one thing….BMW. BMW & Saab had previously had some agreements to share technology developing the next Mini and the Saab 9-2; so this wouldn’t be completely out of the blue.
“6-7 serious bidders have been confirmed and among them is a European car-manufacturer according to several sources to different media. What was interesting this time is that these companies want to build Saabs. We have gotten very strong indications from several independent sources that this european company is German and located in Munich. This company has the intention as Till mentioned in an earlier article, to build Saabs and their own cars on the same platform.”
For Saab’s sake….I hope it’s true!
