More Saab vehicles are on their way, says Chairman Victor Muller

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Saab's new Dutch owner, Spyker Cars NV, intends to spin more models off its new Phoenix platform after it yields a redesigned Saab 9-3. The latest 9-3 will arrive in Saab dealerships in 2012.

This was revealed by Spyker founder and Saab Automobile AB Chairman Victor Muller at the CAR Management Briefing Seminars.

These dealerships, which have not received new products as former owner General Motors had been busy with attempts to sell or liquidate the brand, will also be getting a Cadillac-based 9-4X crossover when it enters production in April 2011 in Mexico.

Muller was at the forefront of the purchase of Saab earlier this year. He moved to quickly ramp up the plants to start US deliveries of a new 9-5 in recent weeks. The 9-5 was already in the pipeline as a platform designed by GM.

Muller said that Spyker's only contribution to the new 9-5 is "the fact that it still exists." He said that since February 2009, no cars have been delivered to US dealers.

Muller said that the 9-3's Phoenix platform started as a GM platform for the 9-3. However, Saab is currently overhauling the platform and tweaking some of the styling of the car. [via autonews]
