Saab to Attend Chicago Auto Show

Saab is back in the business after General Motors decided to sell it to Spyker, so the Swedish unit has already started making plans for the future. And the first thing to do is to attend the Chicago Auto Show in February and show the world the company's main model, which is hoped to bring the company back on the floating line: the new 9-5.

According to a report published by, Saab will showcase both the new 9-5 and the upcoming 9-3x wagon, but the long-awaited 9-4x will hold in line for the Geneva Motor Show.

At this time, it's still unclear whether Saab will attend the show together with Spyker but, given the fact that General Motors said the deal is projected to close in mid-February, the Swedish company will probably exhibit its models as a GM brand. Geneva will thus witness the first Saab appearance as a Spyker-owned company.

Meanwhile, Spyker CEO Victor Muller said some nice things about Saab in a statement for, thanking all those who have supported the Swedish unit since General Motors announced its decision to wind down the brand and shut down all factories.

"The interest in Saab is basically very easy to understand, Saab is an iconic brand," Muller said. "The typical element of the Saab brand is its Swedishness...I think one would be very short-sighted to think that the Saab buyer would be very pleased to buy a Saab from Mumbai," he added.
