It's a good day in Trollhättan. After the many ups and downs of the Spyker/Saab sale, production has finally resumed at the automaker's plant in Sweden. To commemorate the occasion, a number of high-ranking officials took positions along the assembly line, including Saab Automobile CEO Jan Åke Jonsson, Spyker Cars CEO Victor Muller and Trollhättan Plant Director Gunnar Brunius. The all-new Saab 9-5 was the first vehicle down the line - a good thing, since that hot new sedan is set to go on sale in the very near future and will make its way to the U.S. in the second quarter of this year.

What's more, a key phrase buried in Saab's press release gives us another glimmer of hope - plans seem to be in order for the automaker to produce a SportCombi version of the new 9-5, which we've already seen testing.
"With the introduction of the new 9-5 SportCombi next year, a total of five model lines will be produced at the plant."

Sounds promising, and we'll be sure to update you with more details once we get the official word. In the meantime, click through the gallery below to see shots of the first 9-5 rolling off the line, and hit the jump to read Saab's press release.
