Saab news round-up for June 29, 2011

I will remind readers to refer to other sources for the latest Saab news including:

or visit SaabsUnited.com, the Saab Newsroom, Saab Media, Inside Saab, Life with Saab, or Saablog-in.

This is my attempt at recapping recent Saab news.

An interesting and calming post from Inside Saab with Swade.

My opinion:  A lot of media seems to prefer reporting bad news rather than gathering facts.  My irritated thoughts about press preferring bad news to something along the lines of the company that doesn’t give up, is that perhaps it requires too much effort or writing skill to present a fair assessment of news rather than taking cheap shots at a company.

Mr. Wade reminds us of what we already know.  Saab has great new models including the all-new 9-4X Crossover, 9-5 Sport Sedan and coming 9-5 SportCombi as well as the 9-3 Sport Sedan, SportCombi and 9-3 Convertibles / 9-3 Independence Day Edition Convertible.

Financial concerns aside, we need to make more of the car buying public aware that Saab is alive and that this is an excellent time to buy a new Saab.  Were our personal financial situation different, we would be buying 1 or 2 new Saabs ourselves!

Saab recently received payment for an additional order of new cars.

Saab recently secured a partial sale and lease back option for its property, providing additional funding.

Saab also secured additional funding from a short term agreement with Gemini Investment Fund Limited, and has issued payments to employees which had been delayed.

Saab CEO Victor Muller is hard at work as ever working on solutions to Saab concerns and has met with officials from former Saab owner, General Motors and others.

Other investment groups remain committed to Saab including investors based in China.

Investor Vladimir Antonov remains committed to and interested in Saab’s success.

Mr. Antonov has been previously cleared of concerns by General Motors and the Swedish National Debt Office.

Swedish officials and the EIB (European Investment Bank) remain the only apparent obstacles to allowing Mr. Antonov to invest in Saab.

The employees and management of Saab are not giving up, and we, the dedicated supporters of Saab are not giving up either.

The world needs Saab to influence how cars SHOULD be built and I look forward to seeing Saab thrive and succeed.

If you’d like to find out what makes some Saab owners so passionate you must visit your Saab dealer and test drive a Saab today.

Visit Saab.com to learn more about current Saab models, special offers, or to locate your nearest U.S. Saab dealer.

Saab dealers are offering amazing deals on new Saabs and there has never been a better time to get yourself into a new Saab.

Remember:  People who test drive a Saab, usually buy a Saab.
