We learned earlier this morning that Spyker plans on rebuilding Saab around the 9-3, 9-5, and 9-4X models if it acquires the brand from General Motors. Also waiting in the plans in the Aero X, which could be a possible production model if resources are available.
“I love that car, and it deserves to be built,” said Spyker CEO Victor Muller. “It’s got true ‘Saabishness’ in it. It’s one of the best designs of the past five years.”
GM has extended the Dec. 31 deadline to sell or shut down Saab until Jan. 7, giving Spyker additional time to come up with financing to buy the brand. A final proposal from Spyker is expected Jan. 7.
