Friends in Sweden, those with a Saab background, are sure that the cult brand will make its comeback this year. Optimism grows from month to month, which doesn't seem unfounded. Saab 2.0 press chief Östlund is fueling these positive expectations and stating “… late autumn” as the date.
In the Swedish edition of the Auto-Motor-Sport there was therefore a short article on Saab development yesterday. "Maybe you can buy a new Saab 9-3 in the fall" is written there. What I would like, but seems a little too optimistic. Because Saab 2.0 owner NEVS has not yet commented on which markets should be given priority.
In the online magazine Just-Auto press officer Östlund is quoted. In the local text, the start with diesel and petrol engines comes to the fore. Which in turn is speculative, because to the engine variants, the official sources have so far not commented. Whether it comes to a comeback of diesel engines from the long-dissolved Fiat / GM partnership, is considered in informed circles as unlikely.
Saab 2.0 owner NEVS has announced its intention to use the Saab Festival in Trollhättan as a platform to bring the assembled fans and local international press representatives up to date. Which is certainly the best possible stage for the emerging media interest. As always, it is important for us to stay relaxed, the Saab Festival is getting closer and closer. The news from Sweden has been getting better and better for some time, the long wait seems to be worth it. And Saab 2.0 has learned from the mistakes of the past and uses as a mouthpiece, it seems, not only the fan blogs, but increasingly the power press.
