So far in 2011, Saab has been riding a ragged roller-coaster filled with major ups and downs. Just recently, however, things have been trending more positively. Saab inked a deal with Chinese automaker Hawtai that will pump in millions of dollars, and open up major inroads to the vastly expanding auto industry in China. The Swedish automaker is understandably excited by this new deal, and has decided to embark on a global tour to highlight its new partnerships.

Besides discussing its new manufacturing teammate Hawtai, Saab will also bring Russian investor Vladimir Antonov along for the ride, once his deals have gone through. Victor Muller, Saab Chairman, wants the world to meet Saab's newest partners. All involved parties will be hitting the road to reach out to the world-wide media, once all respective deals have been finalized and approved.

      I still think I will have to wait a while and see if SAAB will survive before I return to SAAB family and buy what will be my 4th. Got my fingers crossed because I really don't life my german made car half as much as i did the quirky SAAB.

      Why that hate for chinese products? and strong american based vehicles.. well yeah... the corolla built in usa with more american parts than the iconic f150, the camry, and the civic, yeah.. most of japanese cars built in here are great options. Btw, Chinese cars are getting great advances, they have bought old platforms, and now volvo and saab (both of them own technology that will let me save development years) the future will be interesting

      China gets enough of our money so I'll pass on ever looking at a Saab... Too many good American based vehicles now anyway. Walmart is the biggest US importer of Chinese goods. I don't shop there for that reason alone.

        Only SAABs for China will be made in China. If you bought a SAAB, almost all the money would go to Sweden.

      Once again I question how SAAB will be around this time next year. Sounds like they're getting the 'supply' side of their business in order, but how about the 'demand'? As a former SAAB owner (times 2), I'd be more than hesitant to buy from the current company that just can't seem to get things right. And I'm a proponent of SAAB......
