The New Era For Saab Automobile AB 2009 Onward

Posted on 13. Jun, 2009 by in 2000-2009


The recent news marks Saab Automobile AB’s new era of ownership 2009 onward. What will the new era bring with Koenigsegg as owner?

Here’s the Saab History via Saab History for the record.

This ownership began in 1947 when SAAB began an automotive manufacturing facility to offload the facilities and continue the SAAB company after the War.

The SAAB Era 1947-1969

The SAAB era, or Svenska Aeroplan Aktie Bologet had just over 20 years from 1947 until 1969.

The products produced at this time included the SAAB 92A, SAAB 92B, SAAB 93, SAAB 93B, SAAB 93F, SAAB 93 GT750, SAAB 94 (Sonett I), SAAB 95, SAAB 96, SAAB 96 MC850 and SAAB 97 (Sonett II)

The Saab-Scania Era 1969-1989

The Saab-Scania era began in 1969 and went until December of 1989.

The products produced at this time included the Saab 97 (Sonett III), Saab 99, Saab 99 Combi Coupé, Saab 90, Saab 900 , 900 Notchback, 900 Convertible, Saab 600, Saab 9000 CC, and Saab 9000 CD.

The GM/Saab Era 1989 – 2009

The GM/Saab era began in December of 1989 and effectively went until 2009.

The products produced at this time included the Saab 9000 CS, Saab 900 NG, Saab NG Convertible, , Saab 9-5 Sedan, Saab 9-5 Wagon, Saab 9-3, Saab 9-3 Convertible, Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan, Saab 9-2x, Saab 9-7x, Saab 9-3 SS Convertible, Saab 9-3 Sport Combi, Saab 9-3X Cross-Combi, Saab 9-4x, Saab 9-5 NG.

The New Era For Saab Automonbile /Koenigsegg 2009 – ?

The New Era For Saab Automobile AB should begin in 2009, and will this run for twenty years? Time will certainly tell.

The products possible during this time could be infinate but should reflect their heritage in aircraft design and small car philosophy while being safe and very capable. These products could include a full range of BioPower/ Hybrids, Fully Electric Vehicles, and others just to start with Koenigsegg & Eker’s racing and combined engineering & design prowess.

Ironically, if we look back at all of these eras, we see basically a twenty-year ownership cycle, interesting or what?

During these twenty year cycles, we’ve seen a noticeable trend in global sales as illustrated here as well.

I actually have a sigh of relief now and will be looking forward to the fourth era for the Saab Automobile brand with Koenigsegg.

I hope that you can also use this news for our Saab Automobile brand as good news, so here is to an optimistic future.

    Awww, c’mon guys…the Saab 9-2X was left out of the GM era list….I know it wasn’t what true Saabophiles wanted, but I still love my little Saab and will buy Saab (hopefully) far into the future!
