Spyker makes one last bid to save Saab

By Auto News Log • December 21st, 2009

Don’t count Swedish carmaker Saab out just yet, as Spyker has revealed that it has made one last bid on the company, which is scheduled to be terminated by its current owner, General Motors.

The 11-point proposal was given yesterday and GM is expect to reveal an answer later today concerning the definitive fate of its Swedish brand. According to the CEO of Spyker, Victor R. Muller, the new proposal is in compliance with all the requests GM made, and might get approved by the US company.

“We have made every effort to resolve the issues that were preventing the conclusion of this matter and we have asked GM and all other involved parties to seriously consider this offer,” said Muller. “We are very confident that our renewed offer will remove the impasse that was standing in the way of an agreement on Friday, and this would still allow us to conclude the deal prior to the expiry of the deadline originally set by GM of 31 December.”

Hopefully this new offer will be the one GM’s been looking for, and will guarantee the revamp of the Swedish brand. All we can do now is wait until GM makes an official statement.
