Saab may be gone but Scandinavian cool in motoring is not. Without much fanfare, boxy, old Volvo has become curvaceous, airy and rather desirable. It may have something to do with coffee.
Last week I attended the bankruptcy auction at Saab's U.S. headquarters outside of Detroit and witnessed the last moments of an automaker up close. It turns out the disposition of an automaker's assets is anything but orderly. No, it's more like grave-robbing.
Like a skeevy dude trying to pickup women at a wake, GM's decided to poach customers of the now dead Saab with a remarkably weak incentive offer. Oh, and did we mention the skeevy dude also helped murder the deceased?
With Saab's official passing this past week it seems only appropriate to look back at the reflections of the quirky Swedes from a literary great and one time Saab salesman. Kurt Vonnegut owned and operated Saab of Cape Cod until it closed in 1961 in West Barnstable, Ma giving him plenty of time to reflect on the one…
Saab owners will now feel the fallout from the Saab bankruptcy as the company announced it will cease warranty coverage for cars sold in North America. Everybody is getting börked. UPDATE!
Saab, the Swedish automaker born in Trollhättan, Sweden from the jets of Svenska Aeroplan Aktiebolaget, built its first passenger car, the Saab 92001 in 1947. After filing for bankruptcy this weekend, almost 65 years later, it now may never build another quirky car again. Let's take a quick look back at some of the…
With news that Saab has finally declared bankruptcy and is now as close to being officially börked as it's ever been, many might question whether they should buy one of the more than 1,600 new Saabs for sale at dealerships across the United States. Should you? No. At least not yet. Here's why.
Less than two weeks ago it looked like Saab was finally close to selling itself to the Chinese and thus saving the brand, again... maybe. At least a few more months. Not so if GM has its way. Oh my God! They killed Saab again! You Bastards!
With a life-saving infusion of Chinese cash on deck, Saab's ready to return to its beloved, idiosyncratic self. These pictures, nicked from a fundraising presentation earlier this year, give some outline to its brighter future.
Two years after Saab introduced their 900, the quirky Swedish cars still hadn't exactly caught on with mainstream car buyers. In a somewhat misguided effort to resolve this issue the company decided to produce this bizarre commercial for the UK showing their 900 bouncing off trees and flying through the air while…
Today's lesson in morality and capitalism begins with a single question: Should you try to profit off the death of John F. Kennedy Jr. by selling his used Saab 900 for $100,000? One New Jersey dealer says why not?
In Get Smart, secret agent Maxwell Smart fought KAOS and had the hots for his fellow agent, the luscious 99. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Saab 99 is also lust-worthy, but has its price missed it, by that much?
Welcome to Found Off The Street, our look at cars usually found on the cape that rust liked so much it decided to summer there; Cape Cod, MA. Today we have a "found off the cape" 1971 Saab 96.
Posting the story yesterday on the Viper-powered Saab wagon unearthed this great video of the monster's Viper body completely naked doing tire-smoking donuts. Epic.
Is there anything a Dodge Viper V10 engine can't be wedged into? If so, would someone please tell this guy from Sweden, who installed a 10-pot snakelump into a Saab 9-3 Combi. Sweden should just change its national motto to "Yes."
