Victor Muller's on-again, off-again love affair with Spyker seems to be back on track. During the executive's fling with Saab, Spyker was up for sale to the highest bidder. No one stepped forward to take the exotic Dutch luxury manufacturer off of Muller's hands, which has apparently turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Now that Saab has collapsed into bankruptcy, Muller has renamed Swedish Automobile Spyker once again. With the goal of running an international car company all but faded, Muller is expected to return his attention to building up Spyker.

According to reports, the executive aims to push Spyker to produce 1,000 units a year and introduce a handful of new models. Those include the D12 Peking-To-Paris Concept seen above, a model first unveiled in 2006. Of course, that plan hinges on securing investors for the company. Spyker needs around $32 million to get production up and running again, and Muller is currently courting a number of potential funding sources.

Not surprisingly, investors are a bit skittish after the executive's failed attempts at both Formula One and Saab.

      Okay, maybe someone can help me here. It was a long time ago, probably 1999 or 2000, and I swear that I went to spyker's website and that had a yellow concept car on it with a very cab-forward design. I've been looking for pictures of it for years but every time I google spyker concepts I never can find it. I swear it was spyker. I know it's not the best place but thought why not, maybe you guys might know. thanks.

      I don't think they'll have a big enough market in the "I have too much money and want to buy something rare even if it looks ridiculous" group.
