    Before 1983, associating a Scandinavian car company with soft-top motoring was a little bit like having a smooth-running railway network in the UK - a rather unusual state of affairs. But at the Frankfurt motor show in September of that year Saab revealed a prototype soft-top 900 so secret that it had been disguised while under wraps on the stand as an estate by the cheeky insertion of a plastic block on the bootlid.

    When the wraps came off, the reaction from the waiting press - and showgoing public - was so positive Saab couldn't help but put it into production. That finally happened in 1986, and ever since then the four-seat Scandinavian has proved an enduringly popular alternative to more mainstream convertibles - and particularly for those who want something that isn't made by Mercedes, BMW or Audi. ...

    First looks: Saab 9-5 launched
    By Tony Ng

    The covers have been peeled back to unveil the first new car Singaporeans will get this year - the Saab 9-5. At over five metres long, the executive saloon is the biggest in its segment and it is as if the size is a representation of the burgeoning hope the Swedish car maker (and local distributor Trans Eurokars) has placed on the car. ...

    Spyker Cars NV, the owner of Saab Automobile, plans to tell shareholders in May whether it intends to list the company on the Swedish stock exchange, Chief Executive Officer Victor Muller said. “I think the annual shareholders meeting is an ideal forum to look at what we’re thinking in terms of the dual listing,” Muller said in a telephone interview today. Muller last September told reporters that Spyker may add a listing in Stockholm to its Amsterdam Euronext trading by April 2011. The annual general meeting, where the issue now will be discussed, will be held May 19, he said.

    The Dutch super-car maker bought Saab from General Motors Co. for $400 million in cash and preferred shares last February, as Saab was on the brink of shutting down. The Trollhättan-based manufacturer aims to sell 120,000 cars and become profitable by 2012. Muller, who is Saab’s chairman, reiterated that if Spyker enters the Stockholm exchange, it would also keep its Amsterdam listing for at least a period of time. ...

    With early winter snow predicted for this weekend Saab GB is urging drivers to take necessary precautions.

    Alan Cowan, General Manager Aftersales at Saab GB, said: “After the severe winter weather we experienced last year the thought of a repeat performance is fairly daunting. Difficult driving conditions greatly increase the risk of an accident and even routine journeys can become hazardous experiences. As a nation we’re not really geared up to dealing with extreme weather conditions and snow can make even the most seasoned driver wary. A few simple precautions and a bit of Saab snow-how can really make a difference both in terms of safety and confidence when out on the road. ...
