In memory of Olle Granlund (1936 to 2022)

Time is our friend, but sometimes also our worst enemy. When I met Olle Granlund for a chat at the Saab Museum a few years ago, we planned a follow-up appointment. The opportunity hasn't been there before, now it will never happen again. Because Olle, the father of the Saab 9-5 (Project 640) and initiator of the Talladega "Long Run", left the world a few days ago.

He was one of the people who had a decisive influence on Saab Automobile and who remained closely connected even after the end of the brand.
