The final interview I had at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, was with none other than Christian Von Koenigsegg himself, exactly one week after visiting a Koenigsegg dealership in New York.

The opportunity to meet with him was extremely difficult as you could imagine, especially since I only managed to get to the motor show with a week’s notice, so I was not able to schedule interviews weeks in advance like many members of the press did. I am however, particularly thrilled that I did get the chance to meet with him and want to give thanks to former Saab designer who was present, Taras Czornyj, who helped facilitate this interview after his meeting with Mr. Koenigsegg.

The interview I had at nearly ten minutes in length was my first time meeting with Christian Von Koenigsegg, so I asked some initial questions on how he first took the initiative to purchase Saab in which he provided great responses, in my opinion. As the interview continued, I did have to ask about what kind of support he will offer to current Saab dealerships, in particularly those in the U.S. that have been very concerned about their ability to continue or be “chosen” by Koenigsegg, to which his response was that Saab Automobile’s management board actually makes those decisions, not himself nor Koenigsegg Group. One of the last questions I asked was about how they would earn back to the Saab Automobile customer base and I think his response should certainly satisfy you as a Saab owner, enthusiast or perspective buyer.

I want to give a sincere thank you to CvK for offering his time as his last interview of the day here with Saab History. It was terrific to meet with him, but even better to be able to ask some rather pointed questions upon our first meeting and conversely receive some specific answers too.

My thanks also goes to Tynan’s Saab & JMK Saab for allowing this final interview of the auto show possible for my visitors on Saab History to experience.

    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin.
