Reassuring words from Swade

2011 Saab 9-3 Independence Edition

2011 Saab 9-3 Independence Edition

From a recent post by Steven Wade (aka Swade) at

As always, Mr. Wade has a distinct, informative and entertaining writing style… and the following words seem worth repeating as I agree with Swade and believe that Saab will be a success:

“Of course it continues to weigh heavily upon everyone that Saab is still sorting out the solution to its current financial situation. The pieces are all in place, however there is still some red tape involved in getting things moving. The noises are very encouraging, however, and I can only hope that the various outlets that have been so active in covering Saab’s difficulties can find reasons to report its recovery with equal vigor.

I’ll repeat what I’ve said before – there is way too much good stuff going on at Saab, and way too many people interested in being part of that journey, for this company to do anything but continue to grow.

We are working incredibly hard to plan and execute the future for Saab and the best part is, we’ve got the cars to pull it off. The initial feedback on the Saab 9-4x test drive in Washington this week is evidence enough of that and soon we’ll have the 9-5 SportCombi to add to that. The Saab 9-3 Griffin is going to prove itself nicely, too, I think, with that direct injection engine from the 9-5 up front (and just wait until you hear what I’ve been hearing about the Hirsch version).”

Well said as always Steven.

There are some other excellent articles you might want to read to better understand why so many of us firmly believe in the Saab brand including a great piece from Jeff at Saabs United, and Glenn Brooks of

Saab up! 🙂
