While Victor Muller struggles to secure future funding for Saab, development work continues in Sweden. The British magazine AutoCar now wants to know from reliable sources that Saab will secure the expiring mini platform.
After the BMW - Saab contract with the 1.6 liter turbo engine this would be the second deal between the Bavarians and the Swedes. The Saab management has expressed interest in the Mini Platform R2012, which will expire in 56 at BMW. The new Mini 3, code name F56, will celebrate its debut at the end of 2012 and at the same time serve as a new platform for a small BMW as an Audi A1 competitor.
A smart move. The engine would already have the, by coincidence, fits perfectly to this platform.
