    Victor Muller Looking To Give Spyker A Second Lease On Life

    Ex-Saab CEO Victor Muller on-again, off-again affair with the sports car company he started, Spyker appears to be back on.

    During Muller’s tenure at Saab, Spyker was put up for sale to the highest bidder. A few companies were interested, but none bit, which has become a blessing in a disguise. Since Saab has bid adieu, Swedish Automotive has changed its name to back to Spyker. Now, Muller has some big plans in store.

    De Telegraaf is reporting Muller wants to see Spyker’s production reach 1,000 units annually. Last year, Spyker built only 12 of its C8 supercars. Muller also wants add models to Spyker’s lineup. One vehicle floated out was the 2006 D12 Peking-To-Paris Concept.

    However, for Muller’s plan to come to fruition, he’ll need some investors. De Telegraaf says Muller is in talks with investors and only needs around 25 million euros ($32 million) to get production back online.

    Investors are skeptical though, with Muller's failed attempts at both Formula One and Saab as examples.

    WOW, what a butt ugly car, some interesting ideas, but the over all package is ugly. I think this guy is in over his head. Another Auto Company that should be a page in history.

    This constant BS by Mr. Victor Muller is what got SAAB from being on the brink to being essentially dead... Let's all sit and watch the replay of this story... :deathwatch:
