I'm tired of Chinese taking over so much business control.

I hope this all does work out. Even though youngman's true intentions are to take the tech from Saab and put it into their own cars, it will still be Saab engineers developing the tech and now hopefully, new engines and turbos and revamped interiors

Gm always f things up.
Robert Murray Byl Aug 28, 2012
They deserve to come back for what gm did to them
Jason Brower Aug 27, 2012
As unfortunate as the Youngman affair was, GM was right to shut the deal down. It's appalling how badly Chinese producers have copied any design they can. There are complete copies of so many foreign cars sold by Chinese manufacturers it's disgusting

You know trouble is in the works when a supercar manufactor buys a daily driver car manufactor.

Great now I can buy parts for that cheap Saab I bought
John Serely Aug 27, 2012
I just hope youngmann doesn't ruin spyker, but make them better. (I would love to see a spyker model for about 100k
John Serely Aug 27, 2012

Matt Piccolo Aug 27, 2012

Spyker is selling its soul to the devil. Now everyone in China will have a 'Spyker', intellectually property law does not exist in their world :-/
Dale Schroeder Aug 27, 2012
So basically Spyker sold itself to the other company. Well, I guess with the choices being that or go out of business, it's the only logical thing to do.
Description: Following all of this so far? This joint venture hopes to have the D8 SUV on sale by the end of 2014. If all goes well, then more models will come of the deal - and this is where Saab fans should find...

The last generation 9-3 looked awesome. Easily comparable to the 3series and A4
Alex Stanzel Aug 27, 2012
I also liked their new 9-5 design. I'd liked to see that applied to some new models.
Abraham Mendoza Aug 27, 2012
Yeah me too. I wasn't really into them, but then this whole story made me root for them. They're underdogs and less competition means less effort.
Cory Wilhelm Aug 27, 2012
Saab will rise from its own ashes. I not a big Saab fan but I don't like seeing car companies going out of business.

Mirrors in very weird place but I'd still buy it without a doubt
Stephen Wood Sep 18, 2012

Russell Aug 27, 2012

Matt Piccolo Aug 27, 2012
The headlights/grill remind me of the 2010 mugen civic
Alanna Galligan Apr 25, 2013
Kinda like the d8 Peking to Paris at the back
Adam Thomson Jan 24, 2013
I like how they added lamborghini Doors to a saab!
Description: In return, Youngman will also handle production start-up costs for vehicles to be built on this platform, of which a range of models will be based on. These models are what could become new Saabs. Yes...

I hope that Saab does return. Some people don't notice but most of the features of Saab weren't from GM, most of them were developed by Saab themselves it was just GM taking the glory just like how they take credit of Holden and its developments.
Jon Ashley Dec 23, 2012
those are some good lines
Ty Piper Aug 28, 2012
the mirrors are probly cameras, they do that a lot now, so it shows you what the camera sees on a screen inside
Ray Liu Aug 27, 2012
Saab is back strong and good
Ben August Aug 27, 2012
They're probably video cameras so no need of a mirror
Alex Smith Aug 27, 2012
Apparently the Chinese don't want you to see what's to the side of you while of drive due to the lack of mirrora
Mark Donnelly Aug 28, 2012
i like the rear windshield the most
statusone Aug 27, 2012

Kyle McCullough Aug 27, 2012

Zach Sullivan Aug 27, 2012

Ron Vinson Aug 27, 2012
The back reminds me of the Oldsmobile Aurora from the 90's
Alex O'Brian Aug 27, 2012
This picture is the future my friends
Abraham Mendoza Aug 27, 2012
I bet it would be awesome to see this fly by you on the highway at night.
Edmond Gebara Aug 27, 2012
*Are you Afraid of The Dark... Guess it really has been 15 yrs, lol
Edmond Gebara Aug 27, 2012
@Cory haha you just took me back like 15 years. Now all I need is some Alone in The Dark
Matt Piccolo Aug 27, 2012
Don't like the back, fronts nice though
Cory Allen Aug 27, 2012

Alex Smith Aug 27, 2012
Get rid of those side spoiler things and then give it more shape
Javier Alonso Rivas Aug 27, 2012
