Update: Geely & Koenigsegg have both officially indicated to Saab History that they are not interested in Saab Automobile AB at this time.

I have contacted Saab United as well as Swedish Radio to see why sources are indicating that Geely & Koenigsegg have been touring the Saab Automobile facilities as of late.

It’s too bad neither of these companies are interested as many of us were starting to become hopeful that Koenigsegg would buy Saab Automobile according to the poll I posted following the news.

In December, we originally heard there were three prospective buyers from Jan-Ake Jonsson, now that number has blossomed to an astounding 27!

That same month, I began making inquiries to many companies, one was the Swedish based Koenigsegg race car company, who at the time indicated they were not interested.

That was then, but this is now as Saabs United recently reported that there was a Koenigsegg rep spotted touring the facilities in Trollhattan during one of the sessions this week.

Additionally, Swedish Radio also reports that Chinese car maker, Geely, who was rumored to be a prospective buyer in March, has also been spotted participating in one of these tour sessions of the Saab Automobile facilities this week as well.

I leave you with both reports from Swedish Radio about both Koenigsegg and Geely as well as Reuters back in March that first confirmed the Geely interest.

I guess this leaves us with 25 remaining companies from the original 27 prospective buyers in which to figure out at this time.

Saab has had visits from representatives of the Chinese car maker Geely, which has long been one of the names mentioned as a possible Saab Buyers.

Last week began the visits by stakeholders at Saab in Trollhättan. This is a 20-speech scheduled visit is going virtually daily.

Last week took place at least two visits and Sveriges Radio West can now reveal that one of the stakeholders, who then was in place in Trollhättan, were representatives from the Chinese car manufacturer Geely.

Something that is a little surprising in view of statements by Daniel Dai, Geelys manager at International Business Chamber, in early April.

– We have no interest in Saab in any part. We have nothing to do with Saab, “he said then.

But now have a secure source of Saab confirmed to the Swedish Radio West that representatives from Chinese Geely was in place in the middle of last week, and that they are interested in the Saab.

Last week was a speculator in place – when there was a European company

    There’s nothing about Koenigsegg at any of those links. “A European company” doesn’t mean Koenigsegg.

    If you want to use the story then by all means use it, but link to it.
