Saab Auto Show Coverage

Saab is a Swedish brand of luxury vehicles. It was the only non-core brand that General Motors was able to sell rather than shut down after emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2009. Founded in 1944, the company has roots in the Swedish aerospace industry building planes for the Swedish air force. Unfortunately, after a tumultuous few years and many owners, Saab formally went through bankruptcy and what remained was sold to National Electric Vehicle Sweden in 2012.

    Report: Saab won't make it to Frankfurt
    1313433000

    According to the sleuths at Autoblog.nl, Saab will not be in attendance at the upcoming 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. As anyone paying an ounce of attention would know, this news is anything but surprising. Naturally, it costs money to host a display at a major auto show... and money is something Saab has been had in extremely short supply over the last ...

    Geneva 2011: 2012 Saab 9-5 SportCombi is one sharp cargo-hauler
    1299023820

    We're glad to see that the Saab 9-5 SportCombi is looking good once again. During the General Motors-influenced mid-2000s, the 9-5 took on a bit of a weird shape (those chrome-ringed Dame Edna headlamps were just awful), and thus, the subsequent wagon variant wasn't nearly as special as the generation that debuted in the late-1990s. That all changes now, ...

    1298561340

    Hello, gorgeous. Truth be told, we're usually smitten with any new wagon-shaped design, but there's something about the 2012 9-5 SportCombi that's just particularly eye-catching. Perhaps its the rakish rear window, or how the sleek front end of the new-for-2010 9-5 sedan works so well with the more cargo-friendly body. Maybe it's the big dual exhausts ...

    Saab 9-3 Independence Edition sneaks out ahead of Geneva debut

    The Saab 9-3 Independence Edition (based on the Aero Convertible) marks the day, February 23, one year ago when Saab left the General Motors corporate org chart to once again become an independent automaker (inasmuch as it can be called that, since it's still owned by Spyker). Expected to debut at next month's Geneva Motor Show, the Saab 9-3 Independence ...

    Unlike so many other electric vehicles introduced at the Paris Motor Show and throughout the year, the Saab 9-3 ePower doesn't look like its vanity plate should read "Buck Rogers," and it isn't powered by dark matter or black holes or Neptunian vapor. It's a 9-3 SportCombi with a plug in the back. That's all. But that means a lot for Saab. The ePower is ...
