Saab Soldiers On; Unveils Independence Edition Convertible

“Nobody thought we would survive, but they were wrong, very wrong, Saab Automobile chairman Victor Muller told the crowd at the Saab factory in Trollhättan, Sweden, today, a crowd consisting of factory workers, suppliers, dealers, and others. He continued, “Here we are today celebrating the first birthday of our new company and seeing you all makes me very proud. We have achieved great things together. We’re independent, we’re free to make our own decisions and we have a wonderful future to look forward to.”

Yes, a year after General Motors.

In addition to hot dogs, cake and whatnot, the festivities also included the reveal of the Independence Edition Saab Convertible. They’ll be producing just 366.

Also, they rolled out the new 9-5 SportCombi and 9-3 Griffin, both of which will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show next week.

Congratulations to the stalwarts of Saab for staying strong.
