article imageSaab May Go Retro with Resurrected Saab 92

By Martin Laine     Apr 11, 2010 in Business
While in New York for the 2010 International Auto Show , Spyker-Saab Chairman Victor Mueller said he wants to bring back the classic “teardrop” design of the Saab 92, the Swedish automaker's first car design, produced from 1947 to 1957.
“Definitely, if we look at the top of our priorities list, a small Saab – I’ve called it the Saab 9-2 is the car where we need to expand into, because this is where the market is going, and this is is where Saab has, historically, been extemely successful,” said Mueller in a Fox News interview last week.
The retro design is only in the talking stages. Mueller conceded that the company first has to start earning money. Mueller said right now, developing a new Saab 92 is something of a personal dream.
“The Saab 92 is definitely the missing link in the portfolio of Saab cars,” he said, in an article in The Local. “And this is clearly what we want to bring to the market.”
At the same time, Mueller said Saab wll most likely not be developing a new sports car like the Saab Aero X concept of 2006 any time soon.
“You have to ask yourself, will this bring profitability forward? I don’t think that we’re there yet,” Mueller said.
