Glimmers of hope are arguably about all Saab has to hang onto now, but the Swedish brand hasn't stopped reaching for them. Saab is currently in bankruptcy proceedings while parties on both sides look to extricate the quirky automaker from parent General Motors' web.
Getting ready for that eventual separation, and to entice a buyer to make a hard offer in the meantime, Saab reportedly has signed a pact with GM to exchange technology for five to ten years. As part of the agreement, Saab will get access to GM platforms and in turn, GM will get Saab's safety, chassis tuning, and engine knowledge. Although it might appear to be a lopsided trade, Saab reportedly won''t share its most advanced turbo and safety technology, and in return, it will get... the chance to survive.
