You are so right, SUHRT are in the same situation to place an order on two 9-5´s. I do not feel comfortable at all. I contacted Vladimir asking him to step in and lay the cards right. It is much frustration around so maybe it is better to let the pressure out once for all. I do not take the Keep Calm….. anymore. A company has to pay the…[Läs mer]
I have had the possibility to read the ”Cirkus Muller” book.
It is really interesting reading it is primarily based on interviews with the following people
Bo Andersson, Vladimir Antonov, Peter Brown, Maarten de Bruijn, Joop Donkervoort, Ferdinand Dudenhöffer, Peter van Egmond, Jöran Hägglund, Lennart Iredahl, Jan-Åke Jonsson, Christian von Koe…[Läs mer]
Keep calm and carry on? Where is the ship steering. An information director who does not inform when asked questions. It is a company not a police investigation?
”The truth shall set You free!”
Bad timing indeed:
– ovloV scouting for 1000 engineers, I bet the look upstreams towards Trollhättan
I would not have said anything if it was getting Saab service in Antelope Oregon. But for NY people. Send in Red Adair and stop the leak now we do not need more iduA cars in the roads.
I civilized educated areas of the US and Canada there must be a complete service and dealer network.
CJ You just nailed an very important issue! Hope You…[Läs mer]
I challenge the whole LAGOM discussion. That was ”invented” long time ago when the pitcher of beer was passed around the dinner table. Each guest was just allowed to drink ”so much” so the last person would get his/her fair share of fluid.
Now Sweden has transformed into an individualistic society far from the founding fathers of…[Läs mer]
SUHRT are following every that touches rallying or racing of course.
Just to clarify some issues. Bowler is not a big operation with a big engineering department it is quite as small business with a tiny building and the cars coming out are not two alike.
To be in WRC one has to make 25000 cars according to FIA. You must be able to prove in…[Läs mer]
I have the X for You. I am just about to sell my #119. I really would like You to have it.
It is quite unique:
– SportsCombi Manual 6 speed
– Hirsch updated 300 BHP/bigger intercooler, Ferrita stainless steel exhaust
– ProPerformance Chassis with the unique 19 inch Turbo X wheels (Never sold in the US)
– Hirsch interior nappa leather…[Läs mer]
I know ZF was one of the few companies that stayed with SAAB during the hardship 2009.
There are quite a few variants of 5 links from different groups:
– GM USA
– S2AB (ex. Saab chassis guru Magnus Roland) in cooperation with Benteler Gmbh, they have built a superior iduA S4 with the expertise of The REAL Stig, Stig Blomqvist.
Best of luck at Your new job.
This was not that unexpected really. Guess quite a few people knew this was coming.
Great with some healthy competition here, who will have the best coverage of the Saab world in the future the company or the ”New” SaabsUnited?
Corporate coverage and independent coverage are essentially different animals,…[Läs mer]
You have a great memory… all in all correct. I have a good friend who was in the bidding process for Bowler, so I had some early knowledge. Just hope that the new owner has a business plan at par with my friends. Why not put the 9-4x on a Bowler dakar proven chassis and enter SAAB into one of the most spectacular events. Or the Pikes…[Läs mer]
Sneak peak at DI thursday paper WHOLE front page a picture of Vladimir.
Vladimir Antonov warns in an exclusive interview:
Acute crisis threatens SAAB
Saab Automoble is risking major capitalproblems at the end of this year, That is said by the russian banker Vladimir Antonov who does not believe in the goals of selling 80000 cars.…[Läs mer]
I am happy that TV8 did such a nice piece on Vladimir and me. Vladimir is just like what we see in the show. An easy-going down to earth kinda guy. The two guys who runs the show says in swedish afterwards that Vladimir is a ”Saab fanatic”, I say good this is what Saab needs.
Even my hardest critique ”mrs. Trued” gave me two thumbs UP that was a…[Läs mer]
13-17th of July in Västerås 1 hours drive west of Stockholm is this years Rally to the Midnight Sun. Parallell to this is Swedish Sportscar Federation SBF/FIA 75th anniversary.
Organizers will invite carclubs and owners of unique cars to join in for a great car week.
Why not try to get the Swedish car clubs to join in.
Rally and Racing has never been Knuts cup of tea. He came to Saab when it was a completely different company then it is today. My 2 cents is that the OWNERS like motorsport a lot.
People around the world associate SAAB with rally and Turbos. Remember that SAAB 99 Turbo was the very first WRC car with a turbo engine to win an international rally.
SUHRT are now working on getting Vladimir Antonovs 99 TURBO Sedan 1980 ready for paint and final preparation. The styling of the exterior is not decided yet but it stands between the black 1979 Swedish Rally, the red 1979 RAC Rally or the 1980 Clarion Black with white and orange design.
The teams blue (RAL 5005) ä99 TURBO Sedan Replica ”Stig…[Läs mer]
