Saab is present in the press. Still, you could say. Because Saab is becoming more and more of a mystery for the entire industry.

It is no surprise that Porsche is often bought by a well-established audience in the not so young age. Not even the fact that the psychologist recommends a Ferrari instead of a Porsche for the big show. The surprise comes to the end:
Spiegel: Which car do you drive?
Hossiep: For the daily rides an old Saab. The brand stands for a well thought-out concept of otherness.
I could not have said better!
