As Saabistas are all too well aware, Saab’s days as a standalone brand look to be numbered today at eight: the time left until GM puts the final nail in the coffin on New Year’s Eve.
Yeah. I know. There was (another) last minute attempt by Dutch sports car maker Spyker to buy Saab. But then negotiations broke down (again) last week. So unless a miracle happens on East Jefferson Ave. (GM’s riverfront Detroit HQ address) existing 9-3s and 9-5s will live on in China, badged as products from BAIC, China's fifth-largest automaker.
