“We are signing up Spyker dealerships left, right and center,” Chief Executive Officer Victor Muller said.

Muller said that Spyker will increase its dealer network to 60 from 35 in 2010. By the end of 2011, Spyker plans to have its supercars available at 90 dealers.

“Spyker will be profitable in its own right, very much helped by its sister Saab,” Muller said. “It”s wonderful that the company that saved Saab is also benefiting from having done that in its own business.”

Muller said that Spyker also plans on tapping into Saab’s engineering resources to save cost.
