The Saab deal has pretty much taken Spyker underwater.
Am excited for a BMW-owned Saab; they're a great company they just need management that is not mentally handicapped (cough, GM, cough, Trollblazer, cough). If BMW doesn't bother to keep the Saab name alive, well, it's another established factory at bargain basement prices.

I just hope that if BMW does indeed take them over that they aren't going to spread themselves too thin.
SAAB Group is a worldwide conglomerate that supplies fighter jets, aircraft and numerous other defense and security solutions.
SAAB is a great company, and I really would like to see BMW or another well-established, worldwide advanced automobile company pick up it's remains instead of a Chinese carmaker who can't even pass Euro ncap crash testing.
