    Report: GM wins appeal, dismissal of $3B Saab-related Spyker suit
    1414328460

    It's been a long time since we last heard of the legal battles between Spyker CEO Victor Muller and General Motors, the automaker from which Muller's company purchased the embattled Saab brand back in 2010. To refresh your memories, after struggling through 2011 and entering into bankruptcy, Spyker attempted to save the Saab brand by selling it to a ...

    Followup: Spyker settles tax debt, cancels auction of assets
    1404838740

    News hit last week that Spyker appeared to be in trouble. Citing an outstanding tax bill, local authorities had apparently seized an array of the company's assets – including racecars, road cars, concept cars and spare parts – and were selling them off in order to pay off the company's debt. It now seems, however, that Spyker is in the clear. ...

    Auctions: Spyker liquidating assets doesn't bode well
    1404586740

    If there's any company that's faced some ups and downs, surely it's Spyker. The Dutch coachbuilder originally started out in 1880 and shut down in 1926, laying dormant until resurfacing in 1999. Things were going alright until Spyker tried running its own F1 team (which as fellow niche European sports car manufacturers Caterham and Marussia could tell ...

    1394384760

    Crowd-funding projects are quickly emerging as the way to get things done in the tech business, and the idea is even jumping into other fields as well. But it hasn't exactly caught on just yet in the automotive industry. A few months ago we reported on a crowd-funding campaign to revive the Castle Three Motor Company to build a retro trike roadster ...

    Interests were piqued when Spyker unveiled the B6 Venator concept at the Geneva Motor Show this past March. And then again with the debut of the convertible version at Pebble Beach in August. But aside from revealing that the compact sportscar is powered by an unspecified V6 with 375 horsepower, the niche automaker from Holland didn't reveal much in the ...

    Monterey: 2013 Quail Motorsports Gathering wows with modern masterpieces
    1376780280

    Pebble Beach is an outstanding event if you're interested in pre-war classics, but outside of the parking lots, it's a bit light on more modern stuff. The Quail, now in its eleventh year, leans far more towards the present day, and has become one of the must-attend events of the Monterey car week. Like Pebble, though, it's a highly exclusive affair, with ...

    We met up with the well travelled Victor Muller at The Quail gathering at Monterey and talked turkey regarding the re-entry of Spyker production cars in the United States. He was showing off the running prototype of his new B6 Venator Spyder with 375-horsepower supercharged V6. Although the definitive pricing for these "more accessible" Spykers has yet ...

    Report: Updated Spyker D8 headed for Geneva ahead of production run
    1376317920

    Spyker, which is somehow still alive and kicking, has been desperately trying to produce a mid-engined, super-sports utility vehicle since it debuted the D12 Peking-To-Paris Concept at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show (later revised to "D8" with a change in proposed engine cylinder count). Seven years later, AutoCar is reporting that it might finally see ...

    1375187280

    Spyker promised to unveil a convertible version of the B6 Venator this year, and, while we thought it would make its first appearance at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, it'll actually be showing up a bit earlier, at Pebble Beach next month, a source close to Spyker told Autoblog. The mid-engine B6 Venator Spyder will be powered by the same ...

Spyker has announced it will appeal a US District Court decision to throw out the company's lawsuit against GM. As you may recall, on June 10 Judge Gershwin Drain ruled tht GM had a right to approve or disapprove ...

    Official: Spyker's $3B lawsuit against GM for blocking Saab sale thrown out
    1370960160

    US District Judge Gershwin Drain has dismissed a $3-billion lawsuit Spyker filed against General Motors. In the suit, Spyker accused GM of attempting to bankrupt Saab after the US automaker had already sold the company to Spyker. GM in effect blocked the sale of Saab to China's Zhejiang Youngman Lotus Automobile Company by prohibiting the transfer of some ...

    Tucked in the middle of a very long business update press release, Spyker has confirmed that it will unveil a topless version of the B6 Venator Concept that we first saw in coupe form at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. A specific launch timeframe has not been given, other than the ultra-vague "later this year," but we'll bet our bottom dollar ...

Following his ill-fated efforts to save Saab, Victor Muller is again back at Spyker Cars as CEO working hard on a comeback for the Dutch-based maker of exotic cars. You could say he's a dreamer, but having established Spyker as a ...

    Rumormill: Is Spyker's new B6 Venator merely a reskinned Artega GT?
    1363645740

    If you thought the recently unveiled Spyker B6 Venator held a few familiar lines, you aren't alone. The keen-eyed crew at AutoBild noticed the new Swedish sportscar looks an awful lot like the new defunct Artega GT. The German manufacturer went bankrupt last year and may have sold off the GT platform to pay off its debts. Given the fact that the B6 ...

    Nearly lost in the ongoing soap opera that was the Saab deathbed saga is that former CEO Victor Muller's other carmaking operation, Spyker, nearly got flushed down the drain with the Trollhättan patient. But a lot of work has been going on under the hood to resurrect the boutique high-end sportscar manufacturer as of late, and there may yet be light ...
