After failing to agree terms with Spyker, the only interested bidder GM has taken the decision to close it down

http://www.autocar.co.uk/News/NewsArticle/Saab-9-5/246077/

Terrible news for the workforce right before Christmas. I feel the writing has been on the wall for some time now, I think GM was trying to pitch Saab as a premium brand without anything actually premium on offer.

It very much is a shame, but as Rich states GM did nothing with the brand. The cars were all underpinned by old Opal chassis' and very little independent development was done.

Also, Saab drivers were always such nice people (Si excluded obviously
)

I have a Saab 9-3 TDi as my company car and i must say it is sad news as i would have liked the Aero version of the 9-3 when it was due for replacement. They are not a bad car at all for day to day driving. Much better than a vauhall.

Well done GM!
