No doubt about it, the drama surrounding the bankruptcy of Saab almost seems scripted enough to be fit for daytime television at times. The latest news to come out of Trollhättan is no exception, now that the Swedish automaker is looking for a new suitor.
According to a recent post on Saabs United, Saab's bankruptcy administrators have 6 to 7 bidders interested in purchasing the company and that each bidder is serious about building new Saabs. Among Saab's new suitors in particular is a European automaker which, according to Saabs United's rather patulous sources, "is German and located in Munich." There is also information that indicates that this particular company has the desire to build Saabs and their own vehicles on shared platforms.
Interestingly, Saabs United also notes that the company that wins the Saab deal won't be the highest bidder, but the company that has the best plan for getting Saab back in business.
