Report: Spyker to team up with Opel to make compact Saab

Last month, after announcing that it will officially purchase Saab from General Motors, Spyker release a short press release detailing what we can expect from the Swedish duo – in terms of products. Besides the 2010 Saab 9-5 and the upcoming 9-4X, Spyker execs said that they are considering a small model, known to many as the Saab 9-1.

According to AutoCar, Spyker CEO Victor Miller is working really fast and hard to get a Saab compact completed in hopes to rival Audi’s new A1 and Mini’s Cooper.

Nonetheless, the new baby Saab is still rumored to be three years away and is likely to be produced with a major multinational partner. While Muller declines to confirm the partner, many sources say that the likely contender is Opel, given the strong relationship between the two over Saab’s other products.
