All day long mails came to my mailbox about Saab and the Turkish auto industry. The Saab 9-3 has been celebrated in the Turkish press for days as the basis for a new, national car. The background - unclear.
Sometimes the Saab 9-3 appears as a sedan in the press, then the 9-3 station wagon in the shell. Other magazines show the Cadillac BLS, which is a Saab 9-3 derivative. Camouflaged prototypes are more like the BLS than the 9-3, interior photos are clearly Cadillac.
There were investors from Turkey who were interested in Victor Muller's time at Saab Technology. During the reconstruction of NEVS these contacts were again. Information about the background, which are sound and resilient, even Turkish friends do not have. In the press, a very general article is frequently circulated, which always seems to come from a single source.
The solution of the riddle could be in Trollhättan, just came the following message in my mailbox:
Nevs supports Turkey in the development of a Turkish national car - press conference Friday at 10.00 in Trollhättan.
National Electric vehicle Sweden's President Mattias Bergman wants to present the cooperation at a press conference at Nevs:
