Here is the first e-mail Saab History received from Koenigsegg, indicating that they have no interest in taking over Saab.

Here’s hoping they eat these words in the coming days with a press conference. 🙂 What’s the chance?

Dear Ryan,

Thank you for your email, which is very interesting indeed!

No, we do not have any plans to take over Saab. Even if we had the financial capabilities to do so, it would not make any business sense what so ever. I
would be grateful if you could tell me where you got this information from?

I am very curious.. Thank you.

Take care and regards,

Saab History Receives Responses From Geely & Koenigsegg

Posted on 22. Apr, 2009 by .


As a follow-up to the story which first came from Swedish Radio, I have decided to contact both Geely & Koenigsegg directly for clarification.

This morning, Saab History received official responses from both Geely & Koenigsegg effectively in a surprise twist, challenging Saab United & Swedish Radio’s sources this morning.

I have gone ahead and asked the two sources about where they originally got the information at this time because something’s really conflicting here.

Here are the sources published with permission directly from Geely Automotive Holdings and Koenigsegg Automotive AB:

Hi Ryan,

Nothing I am aware of. Probably false rumours as usual..
