GM will build Saabs outside Sweden next year

Recommended Posts

The Saab faithful have seen their beloved brand play host to both a rebadged Subaru Impreza in the 9-2x and GMT 360 SUV in the 9-7x in recent years. Those two chapters in Saab history came after many of the brand's aficionados said it had lost its original identity under GM's stewardship. Today we have news that will surely drive some of the remaining Saab diehards right over the edge.

Starting in 2008, we will see Saab automobile production begin in Germany at the Russelheim plant alongside the next-gen Opel Vectra, with which the Saabs will share architecture. No specific Saab model or models have been named at this point. This is part of GM's master plan to globally integrate vehicle production. The practice is already visible in places like Delaware, where the Opel GT is built alongside its English-speaking clones, the Saturn Sky and Pontiac Solstice, and as the General continues the shift to more truly global platforms, we'll probably see more moves like this happen along they way.
