Buy-out secures Saab future 02 February 2010 by Parkers Dutch sports car firm to buy Saab from GM Plans to purchase British franchise too Warranty and servicing work to continue Saab owners can breathe a sigh of relief with news that the company is likely to keep going under new ownership, and not be shut down. Owner GM has agreed a $74 million deal to sell the Swedish-based company to Dutch sports car maker Spyker. In return, GM will retain a share in Saab. The deal looks likely to go through now that the Swedish government has guaranteed a 400 million euro loan to Saab. As a result, existing Saab owners will have their warranties honoured, and a dealer network is likely to remain. New models such as the 9-5 saloon should go on sale later this year. Spyker has said it intends to buy the Saab GB franchise from GM UK.
