    They backed out. Maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago.

    And then Spyker was supposed to buy them, but it was going to take too long. GM can't afford to keep Saab open on Jan 1st even if they could get a buyer.

    edit: and seriously B, "kosineng"? Koen-ig-segg.

    Recent Saab's were just rebadged GM products. The 9-3 was basically a WRX, and the 9-7 was a Trailblazer.

    The 9-7 is such a joke. It's not even a NEW rebadged GM product, it's a rebadged GM from 10 years ago. My buddy got one not too long ago, and I knew he had a Trailblazer back in the day. I asked him if he liked his old Trailblazer and he said yes. I said, "Good, because you just bought another one..."
