We write about a great Saab achievement, and what happens? Minutes later, The General makes a tentative deal with a Chinese car manufacturer to build two Saab models in the Middle Kingdom!

The deal isn't a complete buyout of Saab from General Motors, but 3,500 Saab workers in Trollhattan are probably pouring themselves fortifying shots of akvavit right about now. Possible silver lining: Beijing Automotive Industry Holding brings back the Saab 95.
