    Default Koenigsegg buys Saab

    Scanning the news this morning, I saw that Koenigsegg has purchased Saab. What I find interesting here is that the small company, of maybe 50 people, who makes about 15 cars a year, has stepped from such a small production setup of specifically super cars, to a much larger, globally produced brand. Personally, I think only good things will come of this. What's your opinion?

    ksegg may leverage saab volume to their advantage to fund r&d and production of a sub 100k sports car, however i'll be extremely disappointed if they crack open the cheapo parts bin to make it happen...

    on the other he may just not like saabs and bought them so we wouldnt have to suffer seeing those turds GM produced since the last real Vigen

    GM is going to supply parts to them for an undisclosed amount of time, I'd say for at least another year. We won't see anything special come about until that ends, I'd think.
